• " Il peut sembler inconfortable voire risqué de redéfinir les limites de son propre univers. Mais peut-être est-ce encore plus risqué de renoncer et de ne pas essayer de découvrir la vraie saveur de la vie. " De ses expéditions, Erling Kagge, aventurier des temps modernes, tire de multiples enseignements qui sont loin de ne s'appliquer qu'en milieux extrêmes. En dix-sept leçons pratiques, il nous apprend à adopter un esprit d'explorateur au quotidien et à partir en quête de notre pôle à nous, notre Everest à nous, notre rêve à nous.

  • «Mettre un pied devant l'autre est l'une des choses les plus importantes que nous fassions».

    Erling Kagge, aventurier des temps modernes, choisit de prendre le temps dans une société où tout doit aller vite. Dans Pas à pas, il défend un «art de vivre» mettant la marche au coeur de notre existence, comme principe fondateur de l'homme et discipline philosophique à part entière.

  • Explorateur et écrivain, l'auteur fait l'éloge du silence, une façon de s'extraire du monde qui lui est devenue petit à petit indispensable. Il explique ce qu'est le silence, où le trouver et pourquoi il est plus que jamais nécessaire dans le monde d'aujourd'hui.

  • Erling Kagge is an explorer who was the first in history to reach the 'three poles' - North, South and the summit of Everest. During these expeditions, he experienced extreme periods of silence - the longest being fifty days. He has since returned to Norway and searches for moments of silence amongst noisy family life and work as a writer and publisher. Silence is published in 33 languages.
