  8. The Human Capacity for Transformational Change

    Pressures for transformational change have become a regular feature of most fields of human endeavor. Master-thinkers and visionaries alike have reframed existing divisions as connecting relationships, bringing together as dynamic systems the supposed opposites of parts and wholes, stability and change, individuals and society, and rational and creative thinking.

This book offers ways and means of creating the synergies that are crucial in influencing a desired transformational change towards a just and sustainable future.
