"Les mythes et les contes ont-ils encore un sens ?"
Christine VAN RUYMBEKE : Reasons of researches on the fables "Kalila and Dimna" in Kashefi's interpretation
Christine Van Ruymbeke explains the reasons of her interest for fables " Anvar-i Suhayli ".
"The first reason is to see how the author of the XV century tried to rediscover the non-moral purpose of the fable and how he puts it in an obvious place in his rewriting. The second reason: the book of " Kalila and Dimna " became bestseller since X century. It was even translated into several occidental languages and he is considered as a classic of oriental literature. However, it was also criticized, it was even considered as a counterexample."
