Gibt es ein Werk, das für uns so wichtig und prägend ist wie Ilias und Odyssee für die Antike? »Ja!«, sagt der Erfinder der modernen Fantasy: Die nordische Sage von Sigurd und Gudrún! Und J.R.R.Tolkien dichtete selbst den ehernen Stoff der Edda und des Wölsungenlieds für unsere Zeit neu. Lesen Sie, wie Sigurd den fürchterlichen Drachen Fáfnir tötet. Wie er die schlafende Brynhild erweckt aus einem Feuerwall. Und wie am Hof der Nibelungen große Liebe entbrannte und auch großer Hass. Tolkien schöpft hier ein Werk von unvergleichlicher Sprachkraft und einem Rhythmus, der alle Sinne erfasst. Der reich kommentierte Band gibt Tolkiens Originalverse neben der deutschen Übersetzung wieder.

Is business ethics a contradiction in terms? Absolutely not, says Robert Solomon. In fact, he maintains that sound ethics is a necessary precondition of any long-term business enterprise, and that excellence in business must exist on the foundation of values that most of us hold dear. Drawing on twenty years of experience consulting with major corporations on ethics, Solomon clarifies the difficult ethical choices all people in business face. He uses an "Aristotelian" approach to remind readers that a corporation--like an individual--is embedded in a community, and that corporate values such as fairness and honesty are meaningless until transformed into action. Without a base of shared values, trust and mutual benefits, today's national and international business world would fall apart. In keeping with his conviction that virtue and profit must thrive together, Solomon both examines the ways in which deficient values actually destroy businesses, and debunks the pervasive myths that encourage unethical business practices. Complete with a working catalog of virtues designed to illustrate the importance of integrity in any business situation, this compelling handbook contains a gold mine of wisdom for either the small business manager or the corporate executive struggling with ethical issues.

"One of the symptoms of an approaching nervous breakdown is the belief that one's work is terribly important." - Bertrand Russell Work is one of the most universal features of human life; virtually everybody spends some part of their life at work. It is often associated with tedium and boredom, in conflict with the things we would otherwise love to do. The idea of work primarily as a burden was also shared by the philosophers in ancient Greece, who generally regarded work as a curse. And yet research shows that it prolongs life and is generally good for people’s physical and mental health. Why is this? What is the meaning of work? To what extent does it determine our social identity? Should we expect to find work fulfilling? In this book, Lars Svendsen explores these questions and more. He argues that we need to complete this reorientation of our feelings about work and collapse the differences between leisure and work. Work is always with us. But to overcome the sense of being burnt out, we must think of work as not only productive but recreative – in other words, a lot more like leisure. Revised and updated in light of the global financial crisis, this second edition also includes a new chapter on work and globalization.
