This fresh perspective on crucial questions of history identifies the root metaphors that cultures have used to construct meaning in their world. It offers a glimpse into the minds of a vast range of different peoples: early hunter-gatherers and farmers. ancient Egyptians. traditional Chinese sages. the founders of Christianity. trailblazers of the Scientific Revolution. and those who constructed our modern consumer society.Taking the reader on an archaeological exploration of the mind. the author. an entrepreneur and sustainability leader. uses recent findings in cognitive science and systems theory to reveal the hidden layers of values that form today’s cultural norms. Uprooting the tired cliches of the science-religion debate. he shows how medieval Christian rationalism acted as an incubator for scientific thought. which in turn shaped our modern vision of the conquest of nature. The author probes our current crisis of unsustainability and argues that
A witty. wise. and heart-wrenching novel that will appeal to fans of Rainbow Rowell and David Levithan.Tall. meaty. muscle-bound. and hairier than most throw rugs. Dylan doesn’t look like your average fifteen-year-old. so naturally. high school has not been kind to him. To make matters worse. on the day his school bans hats (his preferred camouflage).

Prince of the City
In the dark days after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Rudy Giuliani established himself as „America’s mayor.” This first post-9/11 account of his career shows how Giuliani’s successes in New York set a promising example for the rejuvenation of our major cities. As one who has worked with him as well as studied him. Fred Siegel regards Giuliani as a shrewd tactician and artist of the possible. who could have stepped out of the pages of Machiavelli’s The Prince. A self-promoting. self-absorbed man. the mayor made his enormous ego and tribal ethos serve the city’s well-being. promoting ideals that transcended New York’s ethnic politics and business as usual. The Prince of the City is at once a fascinating character study. a history of New York over the last forty years. and a classic inquiry into the issue of how cities thrive or die.
