Altruism

 795.00

The concern for the well-being of others could be the saving grace of the 21st century. Matthieu Ricard’s Altruism – an erudite, brilliantly ranging synthesis of philosophy, psychology and ages-old wisdom – is a radical call to kindness, which has the potential to answer the biggest problems of our time: the economy in the short term, life satisfaction in the mid-term, and the environment in the long term. As the faultlines of inequality and nationalism leave us ever more divided, Ricard challenges us to be better people–and in the process, make the world a better place.

 

Matthieu Ricard is an extraordinary human being.’ –Daniel Kahneman, author of Thinking, Fast and Slow.

 

“So rich, so diverse… A detailed assessment of what is needed both for individual happiness and for the welfare
