The ancient Athenians were "quarrelsome as friends, treacherous as neighbors, brutal as masters, faithless as servants, shallow as lovers--all of which was in part redeemed by their intelligence and creativity." Thus writes Philip Slater in this classic work on narcissism and family relationships in fifth-century Athenian society. Exploring a rich corpus of Greek mythology and drama, he argues that the personalities and social behavior of the gods were neurotic, and that their neurotic conditions must have mirrored the family life of the people who perpetuated their myths. The author traces the issue of narcissism to mother-son relationships, focusing primarily on the literary representation of Hera and the male gods and showing how it related to devalued women raising boys in an ambitious society dominated by men. "The role of homosexuality in society, fatherless families, working mothers, women's status, and violence, male pride, and male bonding--all these find their place in Slater's analysis, so honestly and carefully addressed that we see our own societal dilemmas reflected in archaic mythic narratives all the more clearly."--Richard P.

The Chrysalis Effect shows that the chaos and conflict experienced worldwide today are the result of a global cultural metamorphosis, one which has accelerated so rapidly in recent decades as to provoke fierce resistance. Many of the changes that have taken place in the last fifty years – the feminist movement, the rapid spread of democracy, the global economy, quantum physics, minority movements, the peace movement, the sexual revolution –are part of this cultural transformation. Contrary to accepted opinion, the conflict it engenders is not a struggle between Left and Right, or between the West and Islam, but one taking place within the Left, within the Right, within the West, within Islam, within everyone and every institution. … Currently, the world is in the middle of an adaptive process, moving toward a cultural ethos more appropriate to a species living in a shrinking world and in danger of destroying its habitat –a world that increasingly demands for its survival integrative thinking, unlimited communication, and global cooperation. … Award-winning author Philip Slater explains the metamorphosis of global culture through the analogy of the transition from caterpillar to butterfly – the Chrysalis Effect – whereby by old cultural assumptions are challenged and innovations are seen as a social ill, a critical moral infection, and attacked as such by the upholders of tradition. And when the budding culture replaces the previous one, it doesn’t create a new way of being out of nothing, but merely rearranges old patterns to make the new ones. Today our world is caught in the middle of this disturbing transformative process –a process that creates confusion over values, loss of ethical certainty, and a bewildering lack of consensus about almost everything. The Chrysalis Effect provides an answer to the question: Why is the world in such a mess?

THE CHRYSALIS ECONOMY Two parallel trends are rocking the world of business. Firstly, a new breed of CEOs and business leaders - younger, smarter, networked in new ways - is transforming household name corporations from old corporate models to new styles of corporate citizenship. Secondly, at blistering speed, the global economy is being radically restructured as the new economy wipes away established modes of doing business. But what are the links between the worlds of virtue and virtuality? And which of today's companies and business models will prove sustainable? Based on first-hand experience, The Chrysalis Economy explores some extraordinary cases of corporate metamorphosis as we begin the long haul from today's Caterpillar Economy for tomorrow's Butterfly and Honeybee Economies. John Elkington looks over the shoulders of business leaders and boards as they build the values-based platforms essential for sustainable value creation. He also looks at the corporate cultures which will be needed and the steps required to achieve them. John Elkington is Chairman of one of the world's leading strategy consultancies, SustainAbility, and the bestselling author of Cannibals with Forks and The Green Consumer Guide. John Elkington coined - and Cannibals with Forks launched - a new term, the 'triple bottom line', which has since helped catalyze profound changes in the corporate accountability and reporting agendas. In the process, his pioneering work is helping to drive the evolution of new forms of 'stakeholder capitalism'. The Chrysalis Economy is the fruit of John Elkington's work and other interactions with some of the 'Citizen CEOs' who are leading the charge to a new economic order. The book identifies the steps world-class companies like BP, Ford, Shell and Unilever are taking towards true corporate citizenship, including new forms of portfolio management, sustainability accounting and reporting and, ultimately, radically different forms of corporate governance. If the 19th Century was typified by mercantile capitalism and the 20th Century by corporatism, then the 21st looks set to be the century of globalism, not just globalization.The Chrysalis Economy explores the implications for markets, companies and business leaders.
