Book Small is Still Beautiful

Download or read book Small is Still Beautiful written by Joseph Pearce and published by Simon and Schuster. This book was released on 2023-10-17 with total page 182 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A third of a century ago, E. F. Schumacher rang out a timely warning against the idolatry of giantism with his book Small Is Beautiful. Schumacher, a highly respected economist and adviser to third-world governments, broke ranks with the accepted wisdom of his peers to warn of impending calamity if rampant consumerism, technological dynamism, and economic expansionism were not checked by human and environmental considerations. Joseph Pearce revisits Schumacher’s arguments and examines the multifarious ways in which Schumacher’s ideas themselves still matter. Faced though we are with fearful new technological possibilities and the continued centralization of power in large governmental and economic structures, there is still the possibility of pursuing a saner and more sustainable vision for humanity. Bigger is not always best, Pearce reminds us, and small is still beautiful. Humanity was lurching blindly in the wrong direction, argued Schumacher. Its obsessive pursuit of wealth would not, as so many believed, ultimately lead to utopia but more probably to catastrophe. Schumacher's greatest achievement was the fusion of ancient wisdom and modern economics in a language that encapsulated contemporary doubts and fears about the industrialized world. The wisdom of the ages, the perennial truths that have guided humanity throughout its history, serves as a constant reminder to each new generation of the limits to human ambition. But if this wisdom is a warning, it is also a battle cry. Schumacher saw that we needed to relearn the beauty of smallness, of human-scale technology and environments.

Book Small is Beautiful in the 21st Century

Download or read book Small is Beautiful in the 21st Century written by Diana Schumacher and published by Schumacher Briefings. This book was released on 2011 with total page 0 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: An influential economist and profound thinker, E. F. Schumacher is widely known for his bestselling book Small is Beautiful: a study of economics as if people mattered. In his later years he became an iconic figure who played a significant part in the development of the modern environmental movement. Small is Beautiful in the 21st Century traces his legacy over the years, helping us move towards practical solutions to our interrelated global crises. In particular, it describes how several flourishing organisations, some large and some small, have remained closely linked with his ideas and work, and have since become associated as the Schumacher Circle. The book both illuminates Schumacher's thinking and shows the ways in which each of us can help to build a more kind, just and ecologically sustainable society.

Download or read book As If Peoples Mattered written by Zelim Skurbaty and published by BRILL. This book was released on 2021-11-22 with total page 526 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Ours is an era of decline for the nation state and one of world-wide concern for the problems surrounding sub-state groups: minorities, peoples and indigenous populations. The often violent resurgence of conflicts between these groups and States in even the stable democracies poses a challenge to international law as well as to liberal political principles. In this volume, an expert in international minority rights provides not only significant clarification of the legal issues involved, but also trenchant insights taken from a wide range of humanitarian disciplines: from philosophy and systems theory to neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) and transactional analysis (TA). The result is a meticulously researched book exploring from a variety of perspectives the terms `peoples' and `minorities' in international law as well as relationships between minorities, peoples and indigenous rights, individuation and self-determination. Of special interest is the attempt of the author to explain the existence of double standards in international minority rights (dubbing them `games') with the help of transactional analysis, and to redefine and reframe the basic terms such as `international law', `sovereignty', `self- determination', etc. The straightforward claim of the author is that the proposed theories can help both members of minorities and those in executive positions to gain insights on the cognitive level and make more congruent, community-oriented decisions on the practical level. The book will hold particular appeal for all those interested in the international law of human rights, politics and philosophy, as well as students seeking a multi-disciplinary perspective on these much-debated areas.
