BOOK-CHAPTER 0 Reads 0 Citations Making Sense of Local Sustainability Published: 01 January 2014
The International Society of Business, Economics, and Ethics Book Series, doi: 10.1007/978-94-017-9008-6_9
What does it mean to live sustainably at the local level? How can we assess whether our local behaviors to try and live sustainably make sense when looked at in the broader global setting? In this chapter, we use Ecological Footprint Analysis to help find answers to these questions. A series of tests are presented that assess local Footprint Analysis data in terms of a global sustainability goal. The South Australian setting is used as a case study. The discussion also explores how the standard Footprint Analysis data presents an overly optimistic picture of humanity’s use of the Earth’s renewable natural resources and argues for an alternate view of these data. The alternate data show that the extent to which humanity is exploiting the Earth’s renewable natural resources in excess of what it is safe to do is much greater than the standard data reveal. This has significant implications for how we assess local sustainability in the global context.
Article 0 Reads 24 Citations The Stakeholder Approach: A Sustainability Perspective Published: 30 June 2010
Journal of Business Ethics, doi: 10.1007/s10551-010-0538-6
This article considers the stakeholder approach (SHA) to organisational management through the lens of what it means for humans to live sustainably on the Earth (that is, for there to be a sustainable world). In particular, the article considers if the SHA, as it is presented in mainstream academic and management literature, is supportive of corporate practices that advance the achievement of a sustainable world. The analysis shows the SHA to have significant failings in this regard when viewed against key sustainable world criteria, with issues of concern evident from the normative core of the SHA through to is practical application in the management setting.
Article 0 Reads 1 Citation The Reauthoring of Therapist's Stories: Taking Doses of Our Own Medicine Published: 01 December 1990
Journal of Strategic and Systemic Therapies, doi: 10.1521/jsst.1918.104.22.168
Gregory Bateson's concept of double description and Michael White and David Epston's notion of doing family therapy from a literary or narrative analogy are explored in relation to the reauthoring of therapist's stories. This exploration attempts to answer the question of what self-management, supervision, and consultation would look like if we applied the same techniques that we use with therapeutic clients? Various ideas and questions are presented which address the following areas: (1) rewriting our stories about clients, (2) rewriting our stories about ourselves, (3) rewriting other therapist's stories, and (4) rewriting industrial consultation stories.
