Summary:

Centré sur les diverses pratiques et représentations de l'honnêteté au Grand Siècle, le présent volume enrichit l'état de l'art des études sur ce sujet via des recherches effectuées dans les encyclopédies, les dictionnaires, les romans, les essais, les récits de voyage, les pièces théâtrales, les lettres, les traités artistiques et les ouvrages scientifiques. Témoignage du besoin/désir de perfectionnement propre à la condition humaine, l'idéal d'honnêteté représente les tensions du XVIIe siècle caractérisé par la dichotomie entre être et paraître, vices et vertus, libertinisme et moralisme, conformité à l'Antiquité et nécessité de modernité... Période inquiète et mouvementée, le Grand Siècle exprime une vitalité en perpétuelle crise et, en même temps, suggère des valeurs impérissables et offre des modèles (honnêtes/malhonnêtes/ déshonnêtes) qui seront toujours d'une vibrante actualité.

Summary:

When Mark Rashid finds himselflying in a heap in the dirt during a horsemanship clinic he's giving in England, he realizes that his fall, the first in many years, is much more than just a fall off a horse. In his fifth book, Mark delves into the reason for the fall and rediscovers the meaning of his life's work with people and the horses they love. Even as a highly successful clinician, Mark is forced to face the fact that he had become complacent. Mark's efforts to recover from years of physical injuries and to rekindle his passion for working with horses are at the heart of Horsemanship Through Life. During this time of introspection and self-renewal, a chance encounter with a man at a clinic leads Mark to become a student of the martial art of aikido-"the way of harmony." That decision takes him back to his roots with the old man who taught him how to work with horses and moves him forward to a new way of blending and flowing with a horse's energy rather than fighting against it. The result of his efforts is a renewed commitment to compassionate communication with horses, using honor, integrity, and dignity. Combining his trademark storytelling about horses and people, practical advice on horsemanship, and his insightful outlook on life, Mark continues to entertain and educate readers in the captivating tradition of his previous four books. This book is a must-read for anyone seeking to truly connect with his or her horse. Book jacket.
