Alexandre Jollien

Here is something I wrote using medieval wisdom to understand the reality of handicapped people:

When I am Weak, then I am Strong is the first of three books by Alexandre Jollien that I translate into English. Jollien’s second book is Le Metier d’Homme with the English title The Job of Man, and his third book is La Construction de Soi with the English title The Art of Joy. From a merely literary point-of-view, it is interesting to see the maturation from one book to another. A 32-year-old philosopher writes differently than a 24-year-old student. If you, the reader, have never before read a philosophy book, then this trilogy might gradually introduce you to the genre. I apologize in advance if my translations do not do justice to the originals.
