Author(s): Charles B. Handy
An analysis of the author's philosophy of organizations and the individual in a dramatically changing social, business and political environment. It shows how materialist capitalism is self-limiting, how efficiency may be the enemy of a cohesive society, and examines the false certainties of science and religion. The book also builds a different theory of meaning, based on the search for identity, the role of the arts and the idea of immortality. Unconventional organization is the author's model - for both business and the individual, requiring new learning systems for a better future.
