Inhaltsangabe: Whether writing or speaking, Laurens van der Post has that rare ability to rouse the imagination and reach to the soul, to enlarge horizons, even to change people's lives., No one knows this better than Jean-Marc Pottiez, a fellow "Eurafricasian" (as he calls the author, with whom he shares a deep-rooted attachment to Europe, Africa and Japan) and the prime mover of this book. It was he who initiated the series of spontaneous discussions that form its core, and he who drew from Sir Laurens this fluent, fascinating and pointed commentary on many of the key issues and personalities of our time. The result is a book brimming with ideas, insights, people and events; at once thoughtful and exciting, mellow yet full of promise, autobiographical but also topical. For all the apparent diversity of its elements - world leaders, writers, tribespeople, politicians, intriguing stories of human and animal life - they are held together by Laurens van der Post's distinctive and cohesive vision. All form part of a whole, a positive, healing, unifying outlook that is sustained by a strong set of values forged from a lifetime of intense experience and challenge. For those who have never ventured with Laurens van der Post before, A WALK WITH A WHITE BUSHMAN offers a tempting preamble to many longer explorations. For those who have, it offers the kind of renewed inspiration of which there can never be too much.
From Publishers Weekly:
Van der Post calls Jungian psychology a modern weapon for healing a divided world. Applying it to South Africa, he claims that apartheid is gradually crumbling, strongly opposes economic or political sanctions and urges all parties to stop projecting their "shadows" upon one another. Our age has tilted to a rationalist extreme, the author argues, and collectivist religious cults, "tribal" rock music and feminism ("a form of Amazonian gang warfare") offer no real solutions; individuals and nations alike must "individuate" or develop their unique identities. Growing up in Africa, this world traveler (Venture to the Interior, etc.) was reared by "a Stone Age person," a female Bushman nurse who taught him reverence for life. These intimate conversations cover journeys to Japan, Indonesia and Tibet; friendships with Jung and Yukio Mishima; thoughts on Conrad, the intelligence of elephants, spirit possession in the Kalahari Desert and much else.
