The Systems View of Life: A Unifying Vision

The Systems View of Life: A Unifying Vision

Over the past thirty years, a new systemic conception of life has emerged at the forefront of science. New emphasis has been given to complexity, networks, and patterns of organisation, leading to a novel kind of 'systemic' thinking. This volume integrates the ideas, models, and theories underlying the systems view of life into a single coherent framework. Taking a broad sweep through history and across scientific disciplines, the authors examine the appearance of key concepts such as autopoiesis, dissipative structures, social networks, and a systemic understanding of evolution. The implications of the systems view of life for health care, management, and our global ecological and economic crises are also discussed. Written primarily for undergraduates, it is also essential reading for graduate students and researchers interested in understanding the new systemic conception of life and its implications for a broad range of professions - from economics and politics to medicine, psychology and law.

Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal (50th Anniversary Edition) (Signet Shakespeare)

Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal (50th Anniversary Edition) (Signet Shakespeare)

In this series of essays, Ayn Rand presents her stand on the persecution of big business, the causes of war, the default of conservatism, and the evils of altruism.

The foundations of capitalism are being battered by a flood of altruism, which is the cause of the modern world's collapse. This is the view of Ayn Rand, a view so radically opposed to prevailing attitudes that it constitutes a major philosophic revolution. Here is a challenging new look at modern society by one of the most provocative intellectuals on the American scene.
 
This edition includes two articles by Ayn Rand that did not appear in the hardcover edition: “The Wreckage of the Consensus,” which presents the Objectivists’ views on Vietnam and the draft; and “Requiem for Man,” an answer to the Papal encyclical Progresso Populorum.

Conspicuous Consumption (Penguin Great Ideas)

Conspicuous Consumption (Penguin Great Ideas)

Throughout history, some books have changed the world. They have transformed the way we see ourselves - and each other. They have inspired debate, dissent, war and revolution. They have enlightened, outraged, provoked and comforted. They have enriched lives - and destroyed them. Now Penguin brings you the works of the great thinkers, pioneers, radicals and visionaries whose ideas shook civilization and helped make us who we are. With its wry portrayal of a shallow, materialistic 'leisure class' obsessed by clothes, cars, consumer goods and climbing the social ladder, this withering satire on modern capitalism is as pertinent today as when it was written over a century ago.

Economics: A User's Guide (Pelican Books)

What is economics? What can - and can't - it explain about the world? Why does it matter? Ha-Joon Chang teaches economics at Cambridge University, and writes a column for the Guardian. The Observer called his book 23 Things They Don't Tell You About Capitalism, which was a no.1 bestseller, 'a witty and timely debunking of some of the biggest myths surrounding the global economy.' He won the Wassily Leontief Prize for advancing the frontiers of economic thought, and is a vocal critic of the failures of our current economic system.

Inside Chanakya's Mind: Aanvikshiki and the Art of Thinking

Inside Chanakya's Mind: Aanvikshiki and the Art of Thinking

White Crane, Lend Me Your Wings, a line from a poem by the Sixth Dalai Lama in which he consoles his followers banished by the Manchu in 1720, speaks through the title of Dr T.Y. Pemba’s novel as a wistful plea for the return of exiled Tibetans to their cherished homeland. This long awaited novel dramatizes the recent history of eastern Tibet, bringing the human story of resistance to colonial conquest and a clash of worldviews to the fore.

—Tsering Shakya, Historian and Professor (Univ. of British Columbia)

Author of The Dragon in the Land of Snows: A History of Modern Tibet Since 1947

Tsewang Pemba’s story telling is dramatic, intricate and powerful, with flashes of the erotic, the sordid, the mystical and the brutal. He offers important insights into the real tensions at the root of China’s still-unfinished attempt to absorb Tibet into itself sixty years ago. Drawing on his own lived experience of Tibetan culture, as well as on the extraordinary life of the Scots missionary George Patterson among guerrilla fighters in eastern Tibet—together with a nod to the moral questions posed by Dostoevsky’s ‘Grand Inquisitor’—Pemba shows just how complex and incompatible were the multiple ideals, brutalities and passions which must have driven events at that time, and perhaps still do.

Anti-Oedipus: Capitalism and Schizophrenia (Penguin Classics)

Anti-Oedipus: Capitalism and Schizophrenia (Penguin Classics)

An "introduction to the nonfascist life" (Michel Foucault, from the Preface)

When it first appeared in France, Anti-Oedipus was hailed as a masterpiece by some and "a work of heretical madness" by others. In it, Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari set forth the following theory: Western society's innate herd instinct has allowed the government, the media, and even the principles of economics to take advantage of each person's unwillingness to be cut off from the group. What's more, those who suffer from mental disorders may not be insane, but could be individuals in the purest sense, because they are by nature isolated from society. More than twenty-five years after its original publication, Anti-Oedipus still stands as a controversial contribution to a much-needed dialogue on the nature of free thinking.
