Resonance

The pace of modern life is undoubtedly speeding up, yet this acceleration does not seem to have made us any happier or more content. If acceleration is the problem, then the solution, argues Hartmut Rosa in this major new work, lies in "resonance." The quality of a human life cannot be measured simply in terms of resources, options, and moments of happiness; instead, we must consider our relationship to, or resonance with, the world. Applying his theory of resonance to many domains of human activity, Rosa describes the full spectrum of ways in which we establish our relationship to the world, from the act of breathing to the adoption of culturally distinct worldviews. He then turns to the realms of concrete experience and action - family and politics, work and sports, religion and art - in which we as late modern subjects seek out resonance. This task is proving ever more difficult as modernity's logic of escalation is both cause and consequence of a distorted relationship to the world, at individual and collective levels. As Rosa shows, all the great crises of modern society - the environmental crisis, the crisis of democracy, the psychological crisis - can also be understood and analyzed in terms of resonance and our broken relationship to the world around us. Building on his now classic work on acceleration, Rosa's new book is a major new contribution to the theory of modernity, showing how our problematic relation to the world is at the crux of some of the most pressing issues we face today. This bold renewal of critical theory for our times will be of great interest to students and scholars across the social sciences and humanities.

Building an Organisational Learning Architectur...

Since the term organisational learning and action learning was introduced,their popularity has grown but the literature has not built cumulatively on the earlier concepts. Rather, it has become fragmented, with little evidence of overlap across disciplinary boundaries.Different researchers have applied the concept to different domains with little convergence or consensus on their definition. The author has taken a holistic approach to analyse how action learning was used to create an organisational learning framework in the pursuit of strategic renewal at Toyota Australia during the period 2000-2008. The uniqueness of this book is that it is based on the insider experience of a practitioner-researcher, in a real organisation, with real events and problems, and real data observed and gathered by the practitioner. The content presented is theoretically robust, ambitious in its empirical scope, and having significant potential for application. The target audients are academic researchers, leaders in organisations, practitioners and consultants who are in the field of organisational development and change management.

Sustainability of Million Plus Cities in India:...

Environmental sustainability of urban settlements requires fulfilling basic needs of inhabitants by judicious use of natural resources and reducing waste output so as not to exceed ecological renewal capacity. Various urban sustainability indicator initiatives across the world is reviewed. Eight resource based domains (Air, Water, Land, Housing, Infrastructure, Energy, Population and Finance) are identified for the study under thirty-two indicators at macro scale (city) and forty-seven indicators at micro scale (neighbourhood). At macro scale, analysis is done to assess relationship between indicators categorised under eight domains representing three pillars of sustainability. Indices are created and pilot tested on eight most populous cities to provide a useful measure of assessing present state of urban environment at macro and micro scale and identifying problem areas. The indices help providing inputs to planners and policy makers to facilitate decision making and inform general public about state of the environment thus raising awareness. It results in improved accountability and efficient delivery from service providers thus ensuring sustainability of urban settlements.

Citizen-Centered Cities, Volume II
78,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Modern cities are increasingly involving citizens in decisions that affect them. This trend is a part of a movement toward a new standard of city management and planning-falling under the names public involvement, public engagement, collaborative governance, civic renewal, participatory democracy, and citizen-centered change. City administrators have long focused on attaining excellence in their technical domains; they are now expected to achieve an equal standard of excellence in public involvement. Toward this end, Citizen-Centered Cities provides a body of experience about public involvement that would take years for municipal administrators to accumulate on the job. The twelve city studies in the present volume were written to provide city administrators with a comparative perspective about how U.S. and Canadian cities carry out their public involvement activities. The opening chapter summarizes general themes and salient differences in approaches to public involvement across twelve cities. The close government-academic cooperation required to carry out this project builds on an innovative partnership between the City of Edmonton and the University of Alberta called the Center for Public Involvement.

Spatial Theories of Education
72,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This collection of original work draws on the 'spatial turn' in contemporary social theory. Drawing on theories of space allows for a more sophisticated understanding of the competing rationalities underlying educational policy change, social inequality and cultural practices. The contributors to this book work a spatial dimension into the consideration of educational phenomena and illustrate its explanatory potential in a range of domains: urban renewal, globalization, race, markets and school choice, suburbanization, regional and rural settings, and youth and student culture.

Phenomenology and Existentialism in the Twentie...

Our world’s cultural circles are permeated by the philosophical influences of phenomenology and existentialism and the illuminations of movements following on them. These two quests to elucidate rationality – ever renewed in the progress of thought – took their distinct inspirations from Kierkegaard’s existentialism plumbing the subterranean source of subjective experience and Husserl’s phenomenology focusing on the constitutive aspect of rationality. From a century’s distance, however, we can see that those who continued Husserl’s investigations and the existentialists could meet and mingle readily because they had this in common, the vindication of full reality. The two projects melded in the inquisitive minds (Scheler, Heidegger, Sartre, Stein, Merleau-Ponty, et al.) and numerous philosophical issues were expanded in various perspectives (the lived body, subjectivity, personhood, etc.) In a fruitful cross-pollination of insights, ideas, approaches, fused in one powerful wave and undermined the dominant reductionism, empiricism, naturalism then being disseminated throughout science and all domains of thought. Existentialist rejection of ratiocination and speculation together with Husserl’s shift to seeking the genesis of meaning in experience closed a gap between philosophy and literature (Wahl, Marcel, Berdyaev, Wojtyla, Tischner, etc.), the foundational nature of language (Wittgenstein, Derrida, etc.) and opened the 'hidden' behind the 'veils' (see herein Sezgin and Dominguez-Rey). This wondrous renewing wind had not only transformed the culture of our day, but has also paved the way to the renewal of our humanity in a New Enlightenment, to which we will pass in our following third and final volume in which we appreciate the impact and promise of Phenomenology and Existentialism in the twentieth century.
