Catalytic Strategies for Conscious Social Transformation: Leadership in Thought
This collection of essays examines the unprecedented reach, magnitude and complexity of global challenges—political, economic, technological, social and environmental. It advocates fundamental changes in theory, research, public policy, and institutions, and advances new thinking on global leadership, human security, human-centered economics, and human rights. The book also proposes measures to break down the barriers between academic disciplines and between research and policy-making, and reconciles the objective facts of science with the subjective truths of the arts and human values. It replaces mechanistic analytic thinking with integrated knowledge, bridging the divide between abstract theory and the living complexity of social reality.
