Description

The eminent political scientist Manfred Halpern (1924-2001) viewed politics as belonging to each of us, as part of the nature of being human. In "A Comprehensive Philosophy of Transformation", his magnum opus, Halpern elucidates the interconnected 'four faces of our being': the political, personal, historical, and sacred. This momentous volume identifies several modes of political activity, warns against the dangers of leaving politics to professional politicians, and urges us to build networks of compassion that include everyone in a just society. Overall, Halpern calls for a transformative politics achieved through enhanced participation and understanding.
