Pada zaman pertengahan, kendatipun retorik telah seringkali digambarkan sebagai seorang wanita yang ayu dan pakaiannya dihiasi imajan, pada waktu yang sama terpegang (padanya) senjata yang memungkinkan kecederaan. Andai begitu metafora yang dimainkan dalam menyusun makna retorik, terlintas dalam benak saya apa pula avatar yang terjelma sewaktu anda (pendebat/pemidato/pengamal ucapan awam) berucap? hodoh, gemuk, atau berpaha besar (?)

Capitalism : A Graphic Guide

27/09/2010 § 1 Comment

Despite the credit crunch, Capitalism now dominates the globe and influences every aspect of our world from laws, wars and government to interpersonal relationships. Tracing capitalism from its beginning to the present day, Dan Cryan and Sharron Shatil, alongside Piero’s brilliant graphics, look at its practical and theoretical impact. They cover the major economic, social and political developments that shaped the world we live in, and examine the views both for and against, from writers such as Adorno and Marx. Capitalism has influenced everything in the 21st-century world. This is definitely an essential guide.

It is more like a story book on capitalism in contrast with a boring textbook on the subject. It is easy to understand yet it manages to capture the whole picture of the philosophy. The cartoons depicting the images of scholars explaining their ideas and economic theories such as Karl Marx, Milton Friedman, Keynes and even Francis Fukuyama within this book indeed made the book an interesting read while at the same time engages the reader with the scholars point of view, their raw philosophies and ideas which are critically discussed in this field of thought.
