STABILITY by Frederick E. Dessauer


Email this review


A scholarly research into the antinomy of progress and stability which is concerned with the variations in the definitions of both terms from the economic, social, political, cultural, religious viewpoints -- this indicates the movement towards stability in recent years. It aligns the objectors to progress as a permanent force; it details the concepts of stability; it investigates its force and prophets; it analyzes its necessary instruments -- bureaucracy, planners, organizers, etc.; it shows the workings of this idea throughout history, in current events, for the future. A book for only the thoughtful, intellectual humanitarian -- or perhaps even for the conservative who will be able to find solace in seeing how stability can be linked with progress.
