This book is divided into three main parts: an
introduction to theories of culture, a section on Chinese
culture, and one on cultural construction. The first part
can be interpreted as an attempt to explore the meta-
theoretical system of culture at the philosophical level.
It stresses the subjectivity of culture, and the cultural
rights and responsibilities of humankind. The second part
takes on the subjective perspective of contemporary
Chinese culture, interpreting it within the context of
the historical situation of the Chinese people and
nation, before engaging in a systematic reflection on
several fundamental issues of Chinese culture. It-s third
part focuses on the interconnection between the revival
of the Chinese nation and the modernization of Chinese
society, analyzing the conditions and challenges for the
three primary types of contemporary Chinese culture:
material culture, political culture and spiritual

This book uniquely explores the nature of the
specifically cultural dimensions of that crisis and how
culture relates to the areas of politics, policy,
economics, ecology and the whole discourse of
sustainability. It debates how profoundly our world is
shaped by capitalist culture, emphasizing the import of
political culture and policy, social justice, leadership
and community in the shaping of a new cultural
sustainability. It also reintroduces questions of
religion, art, citizenship and comparative culture into
the sustainability debate and suggests ways in which the
central issue of consumer culture can be rethought and
others in which socially satisfactory transitions to a
sustainable future might be achieved.

This book is a philosophical exploration of the
relationship between leadership and organization. Each
chapter in the book sheds light on this relationship by
exploring leadership with respect to a particular theme:
charisma, authority, religion, language, authenticity,
image and followership. These themes are linked to
popular notions of leadership, such as transformational
leadership, authentic leadership and servant
leadership. Drawing on a broad variety of sources in
continental philosophy, the author explores the central
philosophical question of how leadership can be
understood in relation to organization.
