Créée en 1994 à Paris dans une distribution irréprochable (Vaneck, Luchini, Arditi), la pièce « Art » a fait connaître Yasmina Reza sur les scènes du monde entier. C´est dire l´universalité des thèmes, l´humanité des personnages et la virtuosité des dialogues, qui font de cette pièce un classique de la comédie de moeurs. Comme chez Molière et Labiche, Feydeau et Jean-Michel Ribes, les élèves découvriront que le « goût des autres » reste le plus efficace des ressorts dramatiques, et combien la fantaisie la plus extravagante peut révéler d´angoisses existentielles.

Best known as the political theorist who wrote ´´The Prince,´´ Machiavelli considered ´´The Art of War´´ his most important work. His revolutionary 1520 work clearly states and discusses military organization and strategy: handling recruitment and weapons, motivating troops, demoralizing enemies, and achieving tactical and strategic advantages.
For more than 2,000 years, Sun Tzu´s The Art of War has provided leaders with essential advice on battlefield tactics, managing troops and terrain, and employing cunning and deception. An elemental part of Chinese culture, it has also become a touchstone for the Western struggle for survival and success, whether in battle, in business or in relationships. Now, in this crisp, accessible new translation, John Minford brings this seminal work to life for today´s readers. A lively, learned introduction, chronologies and suggested further reading are among the valuable apparatus included in this authoritative volume. Even those readers familiar with The Art of War will experience it anew, finding it more fascinating - and more chilling - than ever. Little is known about Sun Tzu (544-496 B.C.) and his life during the Warring States period after the decline of the Zhou dysnasty, but his classic, The Art of War, has been one of the central works of Chinese literature for 2500 years.
´Opportunities multiply as they are seized.´ Written in the 6th century BC, Sun Tzu´s The Art of War is a Chinese military treatise that is still revered today as the ultimate commentary on war and military strategy. Focussing on the principle that one can outsmart your foe mentally by thinking very carefully about strategy before resorting to physical battle, this philosophy continues to be applied to the corporate and business world. Sun Tzu´s timeless appraisal of the different aspects of warfare are laid out in 13 chapters, including sections on ´Laying Plans´, ´Waging War´ and ´Terrain´. Words that are as resonant today in every aspect of our lives as they were when he wrote them.
