The burnt book : reading the Talmud by Marc-Alain Ouaknin( Book )

5 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in English and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout the author emphasizes the self-effacing quality of a text whose worth can be measured by the insights that live on in the minds of its interpreters long after they have closed the book. He points out that the burning of the Talmud in anti-Judaic campaigns throughout history has, in fact, been an unwitting act of complicity with Talmudic philosophy and the practice of self-effacement. Ouaknin concludes his discussion with the story of the Hasidic master Rabbi Nahman of Bratslav, who himself burned his life achievement - a work known by his students as "the Burnt Book." This story leaves us with the question, should all books be destroyed in order to give birth to thought and renew meaning?

Bibliothérapie : lire, c'est guérir by Marc-Alain Ouaknin( Book )

18 editions published between 1994 and 2015 in French and English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'ouvrage constitue un essai dans lequel l'auteur fait état de sa vaste culture biblique et hébraïque; il y puise de nombreuses interprétations, souvent d'ordre psychanalytique, qu'il rattache au livre et à la lecture. Pour lui, le livre et la lecture constituent une sorte de thérapie. La fonction thérapeutique des textes de la Bible et du Talmud est l'occasion de développements variés, concernant, par exemple, des récits (les contes de rabbi Nahman de Braslav), des thèmes (le nom, l'identité, le complexe d'Abel), etc. Il s'agit d'une thérapie herméneutique, car en bien des endroits, l'auteur développe des interprétations sur des sujets particuliers: lecture et sevrage, la mimesis, compter et être compté, etc.--[SDM]
