Science, Tao and the Art of Combat

In his writing on the ancient Chinese discipline of Taiji Quan, Flavio Daniele traces a path in the human experience through science, Taoist philosophy and the art of fighting.

The book is divided into two sections: the first highlights how the most advanced research in neuroscience and cognitive sciences only serves to confirm the principles and practical applications developed experimentally by masters over the centuries, unleashing the secret potential of the body and mind; the second illuminates the ancient path trodden by the masters, explaining, in a true inner “Copernican Revolution”, that the difficulties encountered are not inherent in the discipline, but in the vision that man has of himself and of the reality that surrounds him.
