The Hungry Spirit

New Thinking for a New World




NEW THINKING FOR A NEW WORLD

With his characteristically very personal anecdotal style, Charles Handy analyses how materialistic caoitalism is self-limiting, how efficiency may be the enemy of a cohesive society, and examines the false certainties of science and religion. He then builds a new theory of meaning, based on the research for identity the role of the arts and the idea of immortality. Unconvent-ional organisation is his model for business and the individual, requiring new learning systems for a better future.
