The Hungry Spirit Summary


The Hungry Spirit: Beyond Capitalism - A Quest for Purpose in the Modern World by Charles B. Handy

An analysis of the author's philosophy of organizations and the individual in a dramatically changing social, business and political environment. It shows how materialist capitalism is self-limiting, how efficiency may be the enemy of a cohesive society, and examines the false certainties of science and religion. The book also builds a different theory of meaning, based on the search for identity, the role of the arts and the idea of immortality. Unconventional organization is the author's model - for both business and the individual, requiring new learning systems for a better future.

The Hungry Spirit Reviews


Praise for Charles Handy and "The Hungry Spirit: ""The Hungry Spirit is particularly timely.""--Times Literary Supplement "[Handy's] jargon-free observations pack more power because of their clarity and prescriptive nature...his writings don't just affect companies; they often hit individuals in a powerful way, like the advice of a trusted friend or relative.""--Fortune "Handy excels at stirring controversy--and thought.""--Business Week "Anyone exposed to long-term, pick-of-the-month guru rumblings or mind-boggling businessbabble will think they have wandered into a clear spot in the forest when they encounter Handy for the first time...His writing is crisp and lucid, and his grasp on the human dilemma is remarkably encompassing.""--Chicago Tribune "Handy is...a stimulating thinker who offers a warm sense of hope for the future...He has the persuasiveness of a preacher and the literariness of the anecdotal Irish storyteller...The Hungry Spirit will...be an uplifting experience for anyone seeking a philosophy in a world short of well-expressed humanist creeds.""--Independent "Charles Handy [is] arguably Britain's most respected management writer.""--Financial Times
