Alexandra David-Neel. The invention of a myth
Alexandra David-Neel (1868-1969) is presented as a major spiritual figure of the 20th century. Her long travels to India and Asia, her knowledge of Buddhism and Tibetan customs, her interest in Eastern philosophies suggest that this woman of letters embarked on a mystical quest and eventually adopted the beliefs of the Far East.
However, a careful reading of her writings shows that Alexandra David-Neel was on the contrary a convinced materialist, hostile to any form of religion.
