  • Anglais The Art of War

    Sun Tzu

    Conflict is an inevitable part of life, according to this ancient Chinese classic of strategy, but everything necessary to respond to conflict wisely, thoroughly, and victoriously is right before us at all times. The key to skillful action in any situation is in knowing those things that make up the environment and then seeing the patterns they form so that their power becomes available to us. It is not necessary to change the nature of things to find victory. Since, as Sun Tzu teaches, aggression and response in kind can lead only to destruction, we must learn to work with conflict in a more profound and effective way. The Art of War shows us how.
    The Art of War gives us proven strategic skills to apply when we need to take action and overcome obstacles in rapidly changing, chaotic situations. Though ancient in origin, these strategies are accessible because they are based on the ways we already do things. As Sun Tzu shows, rather than getting mired in conflict, we can create momentum and bring about the tipping point to achieve success.

    Sun Tzu

    Conflict is an inevitable part of life, according to this ancient Chinese classic of strategy, but everything necessary to deal with conflict wisely, honorably, victoriously, is already present within us. Compiled more than two thousand years ago by a mysterious warrior-philosopher, The Art of War is still perhaps the most prestigious and influential book of strategy in the world, as eagerly studied in Asia by modern politicians and executives as it has been by military leaders since ancient times. As a study of the anatomy of organizations in conflict, The Art of War applies to competition and conflict in general, on every level from the interpersonal to the international. Its aim is invincibility, victory without battle, and unassailable strength through understanding the physics, politics, and psychology of conflict.

  • La obra muestra la inteligencia y la frescura de los ensayos de Sun Tzu. En ella Sun Tzu explica al detalle los preparativos previos a la guerra: estrategias de engaño, disposición de las tropas en el campo de batalla, armamento necesario, carros de combate, etcétera. Cómo poder llegar a vencer al enemigo sin tener que desempeñarse al enfrentamiento cara a cara: simplemente imponiendo una moral dominante, infundiendo el miedo al enemigo para así lograr el planteamiento central del libro: "poder vencer sin llegar a la batalla".

    L' Art de la guerre de Sun Tzu exerce  toujours la même fascination sur  nos contemporains. Est-ce parce qu'il  s'agit du premier livre de stratégie écrit  il y a 2 500 ans ? Peut-être, mais cela  ne suffirait pas à expliquer son succès  jamais démenti. Il contient surtout des  leçons qui ont franchi le mur des siècles  et qui restent pertinentes.
    Pascal Boniface, avec la clarté pédagogique  qu'on lui connaît, nous offre  une mise en perspective de L'Art de  la guerre avec l'actuelle stratégie  chinoise. Il démontre que lire Sun Tzu  permet de comprendre la montée en  puissance de la Chine qui paraît aujourd'hui  irrésistible. Mais aussi que ses  leçons sont désormais au service de  tous ceux qui veulent se les approprier,  y compris Donald Trump.
