Questa seconda edizione del volume, resasi necessaria a tre anni di distanza dalla precedente, propone sia un ampliamento delle tematiche già affrontate sia nuovi argomenti e spunti di riflessione che vanno ad integrare ed arricchire il metodo proposto. Partendo dalla definizione di "pensiero laterale" di Edward De Bono, l'autore propone un originale metodo per gestire e risolvere i conflitti in modo "creativo", ovvero esterno alla logica del diritto e dello schema processuale. La creatività é al servizio della mediazione che é, a sua volta, al servizio di una giustizia più giusta e aderente ai reali bisogni delle persone. La Mediazione Laterale si rivolge sia ai mediatori professionisti sia a tutti coloro che si trovano nella vita a dover "mediare", siano essi parti in causa, avvocati, negoziatori o semplici cittadini. Per condurre una mediazione in modo efficace c'é bisogno di competenze tecniche ma, soprattutto, creative. Il libro costituisce un'opportunità di arricchimento formativo, fondamentale soprattutto per coloro che scelgono di essere mediatori per professione.

Everyone knows that high IQ is no guarantee of success, happiness, or virtue, but until Emotional Intelligence, we could only guess why. Daniel Goleman's brilliant report from the frontiers of psychology and neuroscience offers startling new insight into our "two minds"—the rational and the emotional—and how they together shape our destiny. Through vivid examples, Goleman delineates the five crucial skills of emotional intelligence, and shows how they determine our success in relationships, work, and even our physical well-being. What emerges is an entirely new way to talk about being smart. The best news is that "emotional literacy" is not fixed early in life. Every parent, every teacher, every business leader, and everyone interested in a more civil society, has a stake in this compelling vision of human possibility.

The world is full of problems and conflicts. So why can we not solve them? According to Edward de Bono, world thinking cannot solve world problems because world thinking is itself the problem. And this is getting worse: we are so accustomed to readily available information online that we search immediately for the answers rather than thinking about them. Our minds function like trying to drive a car using only one wheel. There's nothing wrong with that one wheel - conventional thinking - but we could all get a lot further if we used all four... De Bono examines why we think the way we do from a historical perspective and uses some of his famous thinking techniques, such as lateral thinking, combined with new ideas to show us how to change the way we think. If we strengthen our ability and raise our thinking level, other areas of our life - both personal and business success - will improve. De Bono is the master of the original big 'concept' book and his enticement to us to use our minds as constructively as possible should appeal to a whole new generation of fans.

In 1990, The Sexual Politics of Meat was published. In just a few years, the book became an underground classic. Neither Man Nor Beast takes Adams' thought one step further. It represents her collected reflections on animal rights, vegetarianism, and ecofeminism from the often-difficult-to-locate sources in which many originally appeared, and includes two important and completely new chapters. More than a book of theory, Neither Man Nor Beast is an enlightened call to action. Topics covered include: animal experimentation and patriarchal culture; abortion rights and animal rights; responding to racism in a human-centered world; ecofeminism and the eating of animals; the need to integrate feminism, animal defense, and environmentalism; the interconnected abuse of women, children, and animals; institutional violence; feminist ethics, and vegetarianism; a beastly theology: the place of animals in God's universe>
