La Hipotenusa [Spanish]

Rating
Un camino hacia la paz interior y del mundo, consistente con las ensenanzas de Jesus, se ilustra en este libro. Empleando principios universales relacionados con la turbulencia natural, tal y como se ha descubierto recientemente en la ciencia de la complejidad, este trabajo muestra como simples nociones de la ciencia moderna nos permiten visualizar las consecuencias de acciones personales y colectivas y como dichas ideas nos invitan, a traves de la razon y la fe, a buscar la armonia y la amistad en una condicion tipificada por la hipotenusa de un triangulo rectangulo. Escrita en un estilo que convida a la reflexion y al descubrimiento, La Hipotenusa emplea el formato de un cuento ilustrado, con "personas" caminando encima de diagramas cientificos, para tejer conceptos y simbolos de las matematicas, la fisica, la politica, la economia y la moral, de una forma original e inesperada. El trabajo, dedicado a la memoria del Papa Juan Pablo II, comienza con una cita "geometrica" del Evangelio segun San Lucas (Lc 3:4-6), el cual esta seguido por un Prefacio y un Preludio que marcan la pauta para el texto principal.La narrativa esta luego dividida en cuatro secciones principales: Un poco de historia, Un poco de matematicas, Un poco de fisica, y Un poco de sentido comun, las cuales estan suplementadas por un conjunto de notas, al final del libro, el cual contiene referencias pertinentes y explicaciones adicionales al texto. Al final, la historia incluye una coleccion de poesias-canciones que enlazan aun mas los simbolos en la parabola, un Epilogo que enfatiza el amor como la solucion a los males que nos aquejan, y otra cita Biblica que refuerza el mensaje de la parabola, esta vez del Evangelio segun San Mateo (Mt 19:16-24). Comentarios: "Carlos Puente has an unusual gift for using scientific ideas, amusing sketches and poetic comments to convey spiritual insights in a way that is attractive and eye-catching." Rev. Dr. John C. Polkinghorne Author of Belief in God in an Age of Science and The Faith of a Physicist 2002 Templeton Prize Winner "Terei de confessar que achei fascinantes as suas propostas, tanto como se tivesse nas minhas maos um libro desconhecido de Borges".Jose Saramago Author of Blindness and The Gospel according to Jesus Christ 1998 Nobel Prize Winner in Literature "After reading it few times, and needing time to reflect after each reading, The Hypotenuse can be understood as both a parable and a Zen Koan. A parable is an allegory intended for a moral and/or spiritual lesson, a Zen Koan poses a paradoxical question or problem whose intention is a spiritual breakthrough. The tale, both profoundly simple and simply profound, has an urgent message for all who are troubled by globalization and what it means today and could mean for humanity and our common future, for those promoting global justice and the just distribution of the earth's good, and the spiritual welfare of humanity. Politics, the economy, humanity and spirituality are components of The Hypotenuse, and therefore, equal factors in its solution. A tale ancient, yet applicable to the present moment, it demonstrates that it is within our reach and power to attain the balance that supports and maintains life for all." Rev. Wil Tyrrell, S.A. Director, Commission on Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs, Archdiocese of New York
