  • The rich and diverse contributions to this volume span a wide variety of disciplines, from psychology and philosophy to neuroscience, by some of the most influential scholars in the emerging science of personal wisdom. As such, it is a collection of essential readings and the first publication to integrate both the spiritual and pragmatic dimensions of personal wisdom.The content of the book goes beyond speculative theory to present a wealth of scientific research currently under way in this expanding field. It also describes numerous promising methods now being deployed in the quest for scientific knowledge of the elusive, yet critical, phenomenon of personal wisdom. The book is an excellent introduction to the field for novice researchers as well as a stimulating and enlightening resource for established experts. Its broad appeal makes it a vital addition to the libraries of academics and practitioners in many disciplines, from developmental psychology to gerontology and from philosophy to contemplative religious traditions such as Buddhism.

  • Robert S. Siegler Robbie Case: A Modern Classic About 15 years ago, Robbie asked me what I thought of a talk we had just heard. I indicated that I hadn't much liked it and noted several serious problems. Robbie agreed with all of the criticisms, but said that he nonetheless liked the talk, because there was one good idea in it that he could use. I agreed with him that the idea was a good one, but it took me a while to understand the wisdom of his position. If there's one useful idea in a talk, then hearing it has been worthwhile, even if the talk also has numerous de?ciencies. On that day and on many others, talking with Robbie changed my thinking for the better. Robbie Case was in many ways a classic developmental psychologist of the old school. The depth and breadth of his theory; the range of age groups, populations, and topics that he studied; and his efforts to connect theory and application are all reminiscent of the greats of the past: Baldwin, Dewey, Piaget, Vygotsky, and Bruner.

  • Parler d'organisation en réseau, c'est se référer aujourd'hui à un objet "gestionnaire" par rapport à une notion caractérisée par sa plasticité et son aspect évolutif. Cette notion d'organisation en réseau sera analysée ici dans celle d'une forme évolutive produite par un système socio-technique compris dans un sens très large. Elle permet de fonder un mode d'organisation avec des principes et d'offrir une perspective applicable à de nombreux organismes publics ou privés.
    Le réseau est traité comme une idéologie qui tente d'apporter des systèmes d'explication à des environnements non techniques ainsi que des réponses concrètes à la vie en société. Il est également analysé sous un angle politique dans le cadre d'une démocratie délibérative comme possible fondement d'une société "réticulaire".

  • « Je, soussigné, Michel Ferrari, avoue être l´auteur du hold-up de l´UBS qui a eu lieu le 25 mars 1990 en plein Genève. Voyou, je ne le suis pas. Voleur, oui, je le suis devenu. Mais qui aurait résisté à une telle tentation ? Tout d´abord, j'imagine le gros coup. Planifier une opération sans risque, une seule, celle qui me mettra à l'abri pour le reste de ma vie. Pourquoi pas un hold-up ? Au hasard des rencontres, mon projet se concrétise. Après 24 années de silence, je vous révèle ma version complète des événements : comment et avec qui j´ai entrepris ce travail d´orfèvre, l´organisation que j´ai mise en place, les intervenants, l´après hold-up et ses conséquences... » Plus de 31 millions de FS (25 millions d'euros) dérobés, soit 220 kg de billets : c´est le casse du siècle ! Ce même 25 mars, Michel doit empocher la moitié de cette somme. Mais ses comparses s´envolent avec l´argent : il ne verra pas le moindre centime. Deux mois après, suite à dénonciation, il est arrêté. Incarcéré, il rédigera ce livre qui dévoile ce qu´il n'a jamais dit à la police ni à la justice.
