Jean Francois Revel, a pillar of French intellectual life in our time, became world famous for his challenges to both Communism and Christianity. Twenty-seven years ago, his son, Matthieu Ricard, gave up a promising career as a scientist to study Buddhism- not as a detached observer but by immersing himself in its practice under the guidance of its greatest living masters.
Meeting in an inn overlooking Katmandu, these two profoundly thoughtful men explore the questions that have occupied humankind throughout its history. They engage East with West, ideas with life, and science with the humanities, providing wisdom on how to enrich the way we live our lives.
