This essay meets the growing urge for major historical summaries and for guidelines on how to address the uncertainty and complexity that characterise our lives, our moods and our work.
Giovanni Siri deals with the subject through the eyes of someone who, having specialised in psychology, has spent his working life in businesses as a strategic consultant and has learnt hands-on how to avoid intellectual diagnosis as well as diagnosis through prescriptions.
Instead, his work is inspired by analysing our “modern mentality”, offering a reading experience that reveals our daily mental patterns, or to what extent the perception of an “age of uncertainty” depends on a flawed perspective, where reality is seen through the lenses of a modernity that has already moved on.
The book is intended for anyone wishing to understand the meaning of the present in order to make responsible choices, particularly readers with professional decision-making tasks such as managers and trainers. The belief is that businesses and training companies are now the launching pad for real change.
