Der Faden ist gerissen: Politik und Bürger driften auseinander. Immer mehr Menschen wollen ihr Schicksal ohne die politischen Parteien selber in die Hand nehmen. Sie gehen nicht mehr zur Wahl, sondern auf die Straße. Diese Krise der Demokratie braucht eine Antwort. Flughafen Berlin, Stuttgart 21, Atomkraft, Schulreform: In Deutschland findet ein Bürgeraufstand statt. Heiner Geißler, der Schlichter von S 21, nennt die Hintergründe für den zivilgesellschaftlichen Widerstand gegen die offizielle Politik: Die Trennung von Geist und Macht, die Herrschaft der Märkte über die des Volkes, die Ökonomisierung der Gesellschaft, die fehlende Transparenz der bürokratischen Genehmigungsverfahren begründen die Krise der Demokratie ebenso wie die Defizite des Parlamentarismus in einer Mediendemokratie mit Internet und Facebook. Vor dem Hintergrund seiner Erfahrungen mit S 21 entwirft Geißler neue Formen einer Bürgerbeteiligungsdemokratie und offenen Diskursrepublik, die das verloren gegangene Vertrauen zurückgewinnen und der Demokratie neue Perspektiven geben können.

Lo straordinario viaggio di un adolescente, silenzioso e alienato, e un vecchio, che si ritrova a fare il nonno suo malgrado, costretto a passare le vacanze insieme a un nipote del quale sa pochissimo e non gli interessa sapere di più. Il viaggio dilata tempi e spazi, produce suggestioni, tiene i viaggiatori sospesi in un’indolenza emotiva ed esistenziale, crea intorno ai due protagonisti una sorta di contenitore miracoloso tappezzato di libri, di citazioni, di storie che rimbalzano dalle pagine, di momenti di straniata poesia, di stralci di storia politica che conduce alle lotte proletarie, al terrorismo e a fatti di storia contemporanea. Nel punto d’incontro dei mondi paralleli avviene una meravigliosa metamorfosi. Quel vecchio, dalla visionarietà obsoleta, si fa nonno e quel ragazzo si trasforma in nipote sancendo un legame indissolubile tra i due.
A leadership and career manifesto told through the narrative of one of today´s most inspiring, admired, and successful global leaders. In Winners Dream, Bill McDermott—the CEO of the world´s largest business software company, SAP—chronicles how relentless optimism, hard work, and disciplined execution embolden people and equip organizations to achieve audacious goals. Growing up in working-class Long Island, a sixteen-year-old Bill traded three hourly wage jobs to buy a small deli, which he ran by instinctively applying ideas that would be the seeds for his future success. After paying for and graduating college, Bill talked his way into a job selling copiers door-to-door for Xerox, where he went on to rank number one in every sales position he held and eventually became the company´s youngest-ever corporate officer. Eventually, Bill left Xerox and in 2002 became the unlikely president of SAP´s flailing American business unit. There, he injected enthusiasm and accountability into the demoralized culture by scaling his deli, sales, and management strategies. In 2010, Bill was named co-CEO, and in May 2014 became SAP´s sole, and first non-European, CEO. Colorful and fast-paced, Bill´s anecdotes contain effective takeaways: gutsy career moves; empathetic sales strategies; incentives that yield exceptional team performance; and proof of the competitive advantages of optimism and hard work. At the heart of Bill´s story is a blueprint for success and the knowledge that the real dream is the journey, not a preconceived destination.

In quest’ultimo campo egli dimostrò al meglio la sua originalità di pensiero, con indagini sulla natura dei sentimenti, delle emozioni e sui rapporti fra dolore e azione .

If we could turn back the clock psychologically, could we also turn it back physically? For more than thirty years, award-winning social psychologist Ellen Langer has studied this provocative question, and now, in Counterclockwise, she presents the answer: Opening our minds to what´s possible, instead of presuming impossibility, can lead to better health-at any age. Drawing on landmark work in the field and her own body of colorful and highly original experiments-including the first detailed discussion of her ´´counterclockwise” study, in which elderly men lived for a week as though it was 1959 and showed dramatic improvements in their hearing, memory, dexterity, appetite, and general well-being-Langer shows that the magic of rejuvenation and ongoing good health lies in being aware of the ways we mindlessly react to social and cultural cues. Examining the hidden decisions and vocabulary that shape the medical world (´´chronic” versus ´´acute;” ´´cure” versus ´´remission”); the powerful physical effects of placebos, and the intricate but often defeatist ways we define our physical health, Langer challenges the idea that the limits we assume and impose on ourselves are real. With only subtle shifts in our thinking, in our language, and in our expectations, she tells us, we can begin to change the ingrained behaviors that sap health, optimism, and vitality from our lives. Improved vision, younger appearance, weight loss, and increased longevity are just four of the results that Langer has demonstrated. Immensely readable and riveting, Counterclockwise offers a transformative and bold new paradigm: the psychology of possibility. A hopeful and groundbreaking book by an author who has changed how people all over the world think and feel, Counterclockwise is sure to join Mindfulness as a standard source on new-century science and healing.
