9780099227724: The Hungry Spirit - Beyond Capitalism - A Quest For Purpose In The Modern World

This is a radical synthesis of Charles Handy's philosophy of organizations and the individual in a dramatically changing social, business and political environment. In his characteristically personal anecdotal style, Handy describes why he believes materialist capitalism is self-limiting, efficiency may be the enemy of a cohesive society, and religion and science hold only false certainties. He then builds a new theory of meaning, based on the search for identity, the role of the arts and the idea of immortality. Unconventional organization is his model - for business and the individual - requiring new learning systems for a better future.

Book Description Cornerstone, United Kingdom, 1999. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Revised ed.. 194 x 128 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. With his characteristically very personal anecdotal style, Charles Handy analyses how materialistic capitalism is self-limiting, how efficiency may be the enemy of a cohesive society, and examines the false certainties of science and religion. Offering a carefully considered and compelling alternative vision, the book challenges the status quo on everything from capitalism and organization to goal-setting and morality. With nods to Kant, Keynes, Sartre and Drucker, The Hungry Spirit is not your usual business tome, but that, of course, is part of Handy s plan. Bookseller Inventory # AAZ9780099227724
