Ten things to do in a conceptual emergency
by Graham Leicester and Maureen O'Hara
Publication Date: 26 February 2009
What is a conceptual emergency?
Brought on by the global credit crunch and the collapse or effective nationalization of so many familiar institutions (AIG, Lehman Brothers, Woolworths...), we face a fresh crisis of faith, as the instability of our previous perceptions of identity, morality, cultural coherence and social position is revealed. In a world where we are losing our collective bearings, we urgently need leadership inspired by fresh and insightful thinking. This booklet provides a remarkable amount of both.
Insightful yet playful, compact, readable and touchingly illustrated, this is a gem of a book. It will appeal to managers and organizational and political leaders but also to environmental campaigners, social psychologists and educationalists.
