9780099480211: A Guide For The Perplexed

E F Schumacher asserts that it is the task of philosophy to provide a map of life and knowledge which exhibits the most important features of life in their proper prominence. The questions: How am I to conduct my life? What is the nature of art and nature? What is the meaning of religion? are restored to daylight on Schumacher's map of life by his maxim 'if in doubt show it prominently'. Science is therefore restored to its home territory and its growing imperialism over the fields is reserved.

Review:

"A condensation of a vast and refreshingly unorthodox system of ideas" (Arthur Koestler Observer)

"Schumacher's arguments are invigorating, provoking, and often dramatic" (New Statesman)

"The most exciting philosophical book for ages" (Daily Mail)

"There is a rich store of wisdom and understanding, embedded in the religions of East and West, which our dangerous preoccupation with science has scanted and ignored... This book is about the different ways in which people may see and the blindness of only seeing in one particular way." (Sunday Telegraph)

Book Description:

A reissue of EF Schumacher's classic work on the fundamental place and purpose of philosophy to celebrate the centenary of his birth.
