The Knowledge Society: A Breakthrough Toward Genuine Sustainability’, the latest book by Dr Marc Luyckx Ghisi, Vice Chair of Auroville’s International Advisory Council, was launched at Café Le Morgan, on Tuesday, July 22 ,2008 at 5:00 pm.
The book carries a foreword by Sam Pitroda, Chairman, Knowledge Commission of India, and preface by Vittirio Prodi, Member of the European Parliament.
The Knowledge Society is a superb synthesis of today’s burning issues of globalization, the transition to post-industrial futures, the growth of post-carbon “green” economies worldwide, changing paradigms in science, economics, and management — all enfolded in a deep cultural analysis of changing ethical, religious, and spiritual values.
Marc Luyckx Ghisi’s deeply personal style illuminates his heroic synthesis. He shows how our endangered human family can redesign
our various civilizations toward more peaceful, just, and sustainable futures for all life on earth.
The Knowledge Society provides dramatic insights into how the world will change in the next five decades. With his concept of a transmodern society, Marc Luyckx Ghisi opens a perspective to the powerful trends away from the industrial society with its pyramidal
and patriarchal structures towards a planetary knowledge society based on matrifocal values and cultural creativity.
