Development and Work Ethic in sub-Saharan Africa By Toon van Eijk
eBook (PDF): $5.00
Lagging economic development in Africa has been attributed to many causes, but the prevailing work ethic is never mentioned as a possible constraint to development in the formal literature. Obviously... More > this is a politically and culturally sensitive issue. A discussion of the work ethic can easily degenerate into paternalistic and racist reflections. The author manages to discus it in a social-scientific manner without lapsing into platitudes. In this book development is seen as a process of long-term evolution in which people are central. Development is about changes in individual and collective behaviour. The work ethic is a crucial component of human behaviour. The work ethic is discussed in relation to the process of disciplining to labour in North-Western Europe, and in relation to issues such as gender, Christianity, the invention of the mechanical clock, the Industrial Revolution, geography, the state, the mimetic desire and the belief in a technological fix.< Less

Civic Driven Change through Self-Empowerment By Toon van Eijk
eBook (PDF): $5.00
In recent years foreign aid has been increasingly criticized for not being very effective. A promising new concept and methodology in the discourse on development is Civic Driven Change (CDC). This... More > form of bottom-up and participatory ‘aided change’ certainly enriches the debate on development. Nevertheless, some challenging aspects in its operationalization remain to be solved. The biggest problem in CDC might be that the analysis of the multi-dimensional process of development remains too superficial to create significant impact. The role of citizens as agents of development is indisputable and a redesign of states and markets ‘from within’ is essential. This, however, not only implies that the citizens themselves, as the building blocks of societal institutions, must develop civic agency. They also need to access the deeper, more inner levels of human consciousness. Societal transformation demands above all personal transformation. If you want to change the world, start with yourself.< Less

Spinoza in het licht van bewustzijnsontwikkeling By Toon van Eijk
Paperback: $12.40
Prints in 3-5 business days
De beroemde filosoof Spinoza is moeilijk te doorgronden. Emeritus hoogleraar Maarten van Buuren heeft in 2016 twee boeken over Spinoza gepubliceerd, waarin hij diens filosofie op nauwgezette en... More > verhelderende manier analyseert. Volgens Van Buuren is de kern van Spinoza’s ethiek de bevrijding van bevoogding en het streven om in overeenstemming te leven met de wereld en met zichzelf. Een aantal sleutelbegrippen in Spinoza’s filosofie zijn de immanente, in de natuur-inwonende God, zelfbeschikking, de rede, intuïtie, macht en zelftoe-eigening. In dit boek bespreek ik deze sleutelbegrippen aan de hand van de analyse van Van Buuren en de filosofie van Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, de grondlegger van de Transcendente Meditatie (TM) techniek. Filosofische begrippen blijven echter tandeloos zonder mogelijkheden om deze ideeën te verwerkelijken. Een synthese van filosofisch redeneren en praktijken voor bewustzijnsontwikkeling is nodig. www.toon-van-eijk.nl< Less
