Spirituality and Ethics in Management edited by Laszlo Zsolnai (2011)
This book is a collection of scholarly papers focusing on the role of spirituality and ethics in renewing the contemporary management praxis. The basic argument is that a more inclusive, holistic and peaceful approach to management is needed if business and political leaders are to uplift the environmentally degrading and socially disintegrating world of our age. The book uses diverse value-perspectives (Hindu, Catholic, Buddhist, and Humanist) and a variety of disciplines (philosophy, ethics, management studies, psychology, and organizational sciences) to extend traditional reflections on corporate purpose and focuses on a self-referential organizational-existential search for meaning, identity and success.

Bringing readers along on a fascinating journey-from the moons of Saturn to the hotels of Las Vegas-Fishman vividly shows that we’ve already left behind a golden age of thoughtlessly abundant, free, and safe water, but also that as dramatic as the challenges are, we have all the means we need to meet them. Knowing what to do is not the problem; the hardest part is changing our water consciousness. The Big Thirst will forever change the way we think about water, our essential relationship to it, and the creativity we can bring to protecting it.
