Comment se « développer » quand on est sans cesse « enveloppé » par des coachs ? Comment le développement serait-il « personnel » quand guides et manuels s’adressent à chacun comme à tout autre ? La philosophe Julia de Funès fustige avec délectation les impostures d’une certaine psychologie positive. « L’authenticité en 5 leçons », « La confiance en soi : mode d’emploi », « Les 10 recettes du bonheur »... Les librairies sont envahies d’ouvrages qui n’en finissent pas d’exalter l’empire de l’épanouissement personnel. Les coachs, nouveaux vigiles du bien-être, promettent eux aussi sérénité, réussite et joie. À les écouter, il n’y aurait plus de « malaise dans la civilisation », mais une osmose radieuse. Nous voici propulsés dans la « pensée positive » qui positive plus qu’elle ne pense ! C’est le non-esprit du temps. Pourquoi le développement personnel, nouvel opium du peuple, rencontre-t-il un tel engouement ? Sur quels ressorts psychologiques et philosophiques prend-il appui ? L’accomplissement de soi ne serait-il pas à rechercher ailleurs que dans ces (im)postures intellectuelles et comportementales ? Pour lutter contre la niaiserie facile et démagogique des charlatans du « moi », Julia de Funès propose quelques pépites de grands penseurs. Si la philosophie, âgée de 3 000 ans, est toujours là, c’est qu’en cultivant le point d’interrogation, elle développe l’intelligence de l’homme, fait voler en éclats les clichés et les lourdeurs du balisé, et permet à chacun de mieux affirmer sa pensée et vivre sa liberté. L’esprit n’est jamais mort, la réflexion ne rend pas les armes, une libération est toujours possible !

From bestselling writer David Graeber—“a master of opening up thought and stimulating debate” (Slate)—a powerful argument against the rise of meaningless, unfulfilling jobs…and their consequences. Does your job make a meaningful contribution to the world? In the spring of 2013, David Graeber asked this question in a playful, provocative essay titled “On the Phenomenon of Bullshit Jobs.” It went viral. After one million online views in seventeen different languages, people all over the world are still debating the answer. There are hordes of people—HR consultants, communication coordinators, telemarketing researchers, corporate lawyers—whose jobs are useless, and, tragically, they know it. These people are caught in bullshit jobs. Graeber explores one of society’s most vexing and deeply felt concerns, indicting among other villains a particular strain of finance capitalism that betrays ideals shared by thinkers ranging from Keynes to Lincoln. “Clever and charismatic” (The New Yorker), Bullshit Jobs gives individuals, corporations, and societies permission to undergo a shift in values, placing creative and caring work at the center of our culture. This book is for everyone who wants to turn their vocation back into an avocation and “a thought-provoking examination of our working lives” (Financial Times).

"Profitons de la rupture, du temps d’arrêt que nous impose la catastrophe pour non pas sombrer dans l’immobilisme, mais ouvrir des perspectives. La vie suppose le mouvement, l’énergie, c’est pourquoi l’ignorance ne doit pas entamer l’ambition, ni le doute la volonté. Volonté de donner une nouvelle signification à ce que l’on vit, ambition de modifier certains aspects de nos existences. Subir de plein fouet de tels remous nous impose non pas des prédictions hasardeuses, mais une exigence renouvelée de lucidité. Quelles perspectives cette période ouvrira-t-elle sur notre rapport au temps, au progrès, au travail, aux autres, à soi-même ? C’est ce que la philosophe Julia de Funès esquisse dans ces quelques pages. Présentation de la collection : Et après ? Notre monde post-coronavirus ne sera sans doute plus le même. Quel sera le rôle de l’État ? Doit-on remettre en cause la mondialisation ? Doit-on se méfier ou s’appuyer davantage sur les scientifiques ? Autant de questions, et bien d’autres, sur lesquelles il faudra se pencher. Les Éditions de l’Observatoire, depuis leur création, ont l’ambition d’anticiper et de créer les débats d’idées. Nous continuons donc notre mission dans cette période propre à la réflexion en publiant de courts livres numériques qui amorcent déjà les thèmes de ce « monde d’après ». Nos auteurs ont répondu présents, conscients de former au sein de leur maison d’édition une véritable communauté de pensée. Muriel Beyer Directrice des Éditions de l’Observatoire"

Réunions interminables, séminaires sportifs, inflation des process : l’entreprise est devenue le lieu de l’absurde. Julia de Funès et Nicolas Bouzou partent en croisade contre l’absence de sens qui paralyse nos sociétés et proposent des solutions concrètes. Pourquoi le management vire-t-il souvent à la tragicomédie ? Pourquoi les entreprises s’évertuent-elles à bâtir des organisations qui font fuir les meilleurs alors que leur principal objectif devrait être d’attirer les talents ? Comment remédier concrètement à ces dysfonctionnements insensés, sources de burn-out, bore-out et autres brown-out ? Pour la philosophe et l’économiste, défenseurs acharnés de la libre-entreprise, il est urgent de laisser les salariés exprimer librement leur intelligence critique et redonner du sens à leur travail. Ce n’est pas avec des babyfoots, des formations ludiques, des documents PowerPoint à n’en plus finir ou des Chief Happiness Officers que l’entreprise de demain sera le lieu de l’innovation, de la performance et du progrès !

Since the collapse of Soeharto’s New Order regime in May 1998, Indonesia’s national, provincial, and district governments have engaged in an intense struggle over how authority and the power embedded in it, should be shared. How this ongoing struggle over authority in the forestry sector will ultimately play out is of considerable significance due to the important role that Indonesia’s forests play in supporting rural livelihoods, generating economic revenues, and providing environmental services. This book examines the process of forestry sector decentralization that has occurred in post-Soeharto Indonesia, and assesses the implications of more recent efforts by the national government to recentralize administrative authority over forest resources. It aims to describe the dynamics of decentralization in the forestry sector, to document major changes that occurred as district governments assumed a greater role in administering forest resources, and to assess what the ongoing struggle among Indonesia’s national, provincial, and district governments is likely to mean for forest sustainability, economic development at multiple levels, and rural livelihoods. Drawing from primary research conducted by numerous scientists both at CIFOR and its many Indonesian and international partner institutions since 2000, this book sketches the sectoral context for current governmental reforms by tracing forestry development and the changing structure of forest administration from Indonesia’s independence in 1945 to the fall of Soeharto’s New Order regime in 1998. The authors further examine the origins and scope of Indonesia’s decentralization laws in order to describe the legal-regulatory framework within which decentralization has been implemented both at the macro-level and specifically within the forestry sector. This book also analyses the decentralization of Indonesia’s fiscal system and describes the effects of the country’s new fiscal balancing arrangements on revenue flows from the forestry sector, and describes the dynamics of district-level timber regimes following the adoption of Indonesia’s decentralization laws. Finally, this book also examines the real and anticipated effects of decentralization on land tenure and livelihood security for communities living in and around forested areas, and summarizes major findings and options for possible interventions to strengthen the forestry reform efforts currently underway in Indonesia.

'FORGET HYGGE. IT'S ALL ABOUT IKIGAI (THAT'S JAPANESE FOR A HAPPY LIFE)' The Times 'WHEN IT COMES TO TRANSATLANTIC ASPIRATIONAL LIVING, IT'S NOW ALL ABOUT IKIGAI' ELLE 'THE NEW LIFESTYLE MANTRA' Sunday Times Find out how to live a long and happy life thanks to the ikigai miracle, a Japanese philosophy that helps you find fulfilment, joy and mindfulness in everything you do. It is extraordinary that Japanese men's longevity ranks 4th in the world, while Japanese women's ranks 2nd. But perhaps this comes as no surprise when you know that the Japanese understanding of ikigai is embedded in their daily life and in absolutely everything that they do. In their professional careers, in their relationships with family members, in the hobbies they cultivate so meticulously. Ken Mogi identifies five key pillars to ikigai: Pillar 1: Starting small Pillar 2: Releasing yourself Pillar 3:Harmony and sustainability Pillar 4:The joy of little things Pillar 5:Being in the here and now The Japanese talk about ikigai as 'a reason to get up in the morning'. It is something that keeps one's enthusiasm for life going, whether you are a cleaner of the famous Shinkansen bullet train, the mother of a newborn child or a Michelin-starred sushi chef. The Five Pillars at the heart of everything they do. But how do you find your own ikigai? How does ikigai contribute to happiness? Neuroscientist and bestselling Japanese writer Ken Mogi provides an absorbing insight into this way of life, incorporating scientific research and first-hand experience, and providing a colourful narrative of Japanese culture and history along the way.
