日本傳統美學與思想哲學「侘寂」(Wabi-Sabi ),以安靜、質樸、淡然之道面對人世間的不完美。入門經典《Wabi-Sabi:給設計者、生活家的日式美學基礎》,讓我們思索如何從日常生活中,尋找心安之處。義大利學者諾丘.歐丁著作《無用之用》則提出探索之必要,緩慢之必要,醞釀之必要,徒然之必要。為生活留一點白,始會發現更多可能。

===================

Alain de Botton, a non-believer himself, proposes in his book Religion for Atheists that we should look to religions for insights on, among other topics, how to: build a sense of community, make our relationships last, dampen feelings of envy and inadequacy, escape the 24-hour media world, go traveling, get more out of art, and build new businesses geared around our emotional needs. The title surely provides an interesting angle for atheists and agnostics to reflect upon.
