Rotraud A. Perner - The Unrepentant Society

There are ways to a better, more compassionate world.

We live in a world where corruption, deception and violence, relentless careerism and unlimited greed are accepted by nearly everyone. Barely anyone asks: Do things have to be this way? What happened to an individual and collective sense of responsibility? Why do less and less people have a sense for injustice? Rotraud A. Perner embarks on a quest to find out why the courage to take on responsibility seems to be lost. She analizes the causes and describes a path to a better, more compassionate world. Perner not only delivers one of the most fascinating analyses of today’s world, she also points out the purifying power of repentance and the many possibilities of a culture of honesty.

Man reibt sich die Augen und spitz die Ohren. Was fangen Menschen von heute mit Hochmut und Habgier, Wollust und Zorn, Völlerei, Eifersucht du Trägheit an? Rotraud Perner hat dazu in ihrem neuen Buch eine Menge zu sagen, weil sie die Sündendefinition sinnvoll ein wenig streckt.

Georg Psota Michael Horowitz - The vast lands of our mind

On our mental state in a crazy world

What is good for our mental wellbeing, from our baby years to old age? We live in times where mental illness and confusion are on the rise, our society is rapidly changing, and people are more and more stressed and overwhelmed. Only a few years ago, philosophers described this phenomenon as "a society of fatigue". Increasingly this fatigue seems to expand into fear and helplessness. The authors take readers on a journey through the wondrous world of our psyche. They answer questions that we have all encountered when our minds enter a state of emergency and they ask further questions in a world that's becoming crazier each day.

Georg Fraberger - How do I become me - Between body, heart and mind

Zwischen Körper, Verstand und Herz

We are taught to set ourselves targets. We train our body and function in accordance with social protocols. We try to be successful and a perfect partner in matters of the heart. But this balancing act is often not achieved. The body becomes tired and threatens to buckle under the stress, or we experience inner conflict. But who is in the right: body, heart or mind? How do I become me, and who am I? Our thoughts appear to be free, but in truth are tied to our body. Georg Fraberger, himself severely physically disabled from birth, illustrates how we can lead a balanced life through the harmonious connection of body, heart and mind.
