Cyrille Javary, dont on connaît par ses nombreuses guides le expertise d'initiateur à los angeles tradition chinoise, nous livre ici une synthèse à l. a. fois profonde et ludique des dynamiques à l'oeuvre dans le « penser » chinois.

De ces entre-deux omniprésents jaillit un rapport particulier à l'espace et au temps, une imaginative and prescient originale de l. a. civilisation, de l. a. spiritualité et de los angeles politique. Cyrille Javary nourrit son propos de mille anecdotes du quotidien, mais aussi de l. a. grande Histoire de l. a. Chine, pour nous faire découvrir de l'intérieur cette civilisation à l. a. fois old et ultra-moderne.
