Many organizations struggle with the dynamics and the complexity of today's social ecosystems that connect everyone and everything, everywhere and all the time.

Tragic Pathos: Pity and Fear in Greek Philosophy and Tragedy by Dana LaCourse Munteanu
English | 2011 | ISBN: 0521765102 | 292 pages | PDF | 1,3 MB

However, this book shows that, while Greek thinkers all acknowledge pity and some form of fear as responses to tragedy, each assumes for the two emotions a different purpose, mode of presentation and, to a degree, understanding.

Is thinking about oneself special? One could mistake one's car for someone else's, but it seems one could not mistake one's own headache for someone else's. Why not?

Culinary Reactions: The Everyday Chemistry of Cooking by Simon Quellen Field
English | 2011 | ISBN: 1569767068 | 288 pages | PDF | 4,9 MB

And unlike in a laboratory, you can eat your experiments to verify your hypotheses.
