Serge Latouche - Farewell ​to Growth
Most ​of us who live in the North and the West consume far too much - too much meat, too much fat, too much sugar, too much salt. We are more likely to put on too much weight than to go hungry. We live in a society that is heading for a crash. We are aware of what is happening and yet we refuse to take it fully into account. Above all we refuse to address the issue that lies at the heart of our problems - namely, the fact that our societies are based on an economy whose primary goal is growth. Serge Latouche argues that we need to rethink from the very foundations the idea that our societies should be based on growth. He offers a radical alternative - a society of 'de-growth'. De-growth is not the same thing as negative growth. We should be talking about 'a-growth', in the sense in which we speak of 'a-theism'. And we do indeed have to abandon a faith of religion - that of the economy, progress and development - and reject the irrational and quasi-idolatrous cult of growth for growth's sake. While many realize that the never-ending pursuit of growth is incompatible with a finite planet, we have yet to come to terms with the implications of this - the need to produce less and consume less. But if we do not change course, we are heading for an ecological and human disaster. There is still time to imagine, quite calmly, a system based upon a different logic, and to plan for a 'de-growth society'. Serge Latouche is Professor Emeritus at the University of Paris-Sud

Serge Latouche - A ​nemnövekedés diszkrét bája
Latouche ​professzor ideális filozófus és ideális mozgalmár. Az általa bevezetett és most megjelent könyvében körüljárt 'nemnövekedés' egy valódi forradalmi fogalom, amely képes lehet elérni a szökési sebességet, kiszabadulni az 'elégedett társadalmak', a 'néma társadalmak' hermetikus karanténjaiból, a mesterségesen fenntartott közöny mocsarából, és terjedésnek indulni ... Jó hír, és jó könyv! Roppant izgalmas olvasnivaló, amely kellemes és érdekfeszítő beavatást jelent korunk globális kihívásainak rendszerébe, azaz abba, hogy mi a szitu nagyban, és mi mindent tehetünk mi, kis pontok ...
