A Guide for the Perplexed is E. F. Schumacher's classic work of philosophy and a statement of the philosophies that underpin his economic masterpiece Small is Beautiful.

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.
