In this work, Alexander Rosenthal Pubul presents a broad examination of the ancient philosophical question: "What is the good life?", while addressing how the liberal arts can help us to answer this question. Greek philosophy distinguished between the "noble" (what is good in itself), from the merely "useful" (good for something else). From thence follows the distinction between the liberal arts which pursue such noble goods and the mechanical arts which are only instrumental. For Aristotle, the most noble and excellent good is wisdom itself. Hence the theoretic life devoted to the love of wisdom for its own sake -philosophy - is the highest and the most excellent.This work theorizes the origins of modernity in a rebellion against this Greek conception resulting in a complete inversion of the classical hierarchy. Sir. Francis Bacon reconceiving the purpose of knowledge as power, enthroned technology over philosophy and the liberal arts. The unfolding of the modern Baconian revolution progressively sidelines the liberal arts, as practical economic and technical utility become the standard of value. In assessing this problem, the book engages in a capacious journey across disciplines like philosophy, history, art, politics, and science. It is also a veritable tour across the Western intellectual tradition including Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Cicero, Seneca, Thomas Aquinas, Bacon, Descartes, Hume, Kant, Nietzsche, Dewey, Berdyaev, Einstein, and Heidegger. It pleads the urgent need to preserve the humanizing cultural ideals of the ancient classics against the modern tyranny of utility and the dangers of a new barbarism.

Design of Adaptive Organizations
119,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Organization design has been discussed by many authors in management and organization theory. They have obtained intuitive and prescriptive propositions appealing that the best organization design is contingent on the environmental conditions. But their studies, called contingency theory, are mostly based on empirical research. Most of the 'propositions' are drawn as only inferences from the results of them. On the other hand, decision theoretic models of 'organizations' in the stochastic environment have been studied by some economists and management scientists independently of contingency theory. In this book, important aspects of organization design problems are formulated as statistical decision problems in the framework of management and organization theory. Part One of this book analyzes a short-run adaptive problems of the organization design. Part One contains an expanded exposition of the ideas and results published in the professional journals, and I would like to thank the anonymous reviewers of the following journals: Behaviormetrika, Human Relations, Behavioral Science. Part Two of this book considers a long-run adaptive process in the organization, and has not previously been published in its IV present form, although a version of this part is to appear in Journal of the Department of Liberal Arts, March 1987, The University of Tokyo. The resul ts of Part One and Part Two are supported by the empirical research on Japanese firms in Part Three. This research was financially supported by Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Public Corporation (NTT). I acknowledge this gratefully.

Transcendent Individual
40,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Transcendent Individual argues for a reappraisal of the place of the individual in anthropolgical theory and ethnographic writing. A wealth of voices illustrate and inform the text, showing ways in which individuals creatively 'write', narrate and animate cultural and social life. This is an anthropology imbued with a liberal morality which is willing to make value judgements over and against culture in favour of individuality. Rapport draws widely on ethnographic and theoretic materials bringing into the debate a range of voices, among them Nietzsche, Wilde, George Steiner, Richard Rorty, John Berger and Anthony Cohen. In doing so he approaches individuality in terms of a range of issues: biological integrity, consciousness, agency, democracy, discourse, globalism, knowledge and play.

The Political Economy of International Trade Ne...
28,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

One proposition from economics that is both true and non-trivial is the Ricardian concept of comparative advantage. Its logical corollary - that governments should not intervene into international trade - is almost universally endorsed within the discipline. Hence, economists remain short of a clear grasp of international trade negotiations - be these held under the auspices of the WTO or elsewhere. Why do governments need protracted negotiations to do what is in their own countries' best interest? What purposes do trade negotiations and agreements serve? Assorting a host of arguments from the entire range of economic schools of thought, Nikolai Ziegler provides a comprehensive answer. That given and the gap between political and economic rationality acknowledged, he explores ways to bridge this gap and make negotiations work more smoothly. A two-level game perspective reveals adjustment screws which may be turned to promote liberal trade policy and international cooperation. Game theoretic illustration and appraisal of these strategic levers is embedded in case studies and cliometric excursions. The reader will not find panaceas. Yet she will aqcuire a deeper understanding of the sensitive clockwork of international trade negotiations, encounter some innovative proposals as to lubricating that clockwork and, hopefully, find this book an interesting reading.
