This is the website of philosopher and management consultant Ivo Brughmans about connecting opposites. Living life fully means choosing to give opposites an equal place and learning to play with them, to balance and combine them. The aim of this site and the book The Art of Paradoxical Life is to inspire by presenting an attractive alternative to our current way of living, working, managing and governing.

Woman Planting in Roof GardenAlways when someone’s life becomes rich and fruitful, this is only the result of discord and inner contradiction. What would sobriety and intelligence be worth, if one never experienced ecstasy, what would sensual pleasures be worth without the shadow of death, and what would love be worth, if both sexes wouldn’t be eternal arch-enemies?’

Hermann Hesse, Narziss en Goldmund
