Philosophy in the present by Alain Badiou( Book )

3 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two controversial thinkers discuss a timeless but nonetheless urgent question: should philosophy interfere in the world? Nothing less than philosophy is at stake because, according to Badiou, philosophy is nothing but interference and commitment and will not be restrained by academic discipline. Philosophy is strange and new, and yet speaks in the name of all - as Badiou shows with his theory of universality. Similarly, Zizek believes that the philosopher must intervene, contrary to all expectations, in the key issues of the time. He can offer no direction, but this only shows that the question has been posed incorrectly: it is valid to change the terms of the debate and settle on philosophy as abnormality and excess. At once an invitation to philosophy and an introduction to the thinking of two of the most topical and controversial philosophers writing today, this concise volume will be of great interest to students and general readers alike. -- Publisher description

Mass Customization als Wettbewerbsstrategie in der Finanzdienstleistungsbranche by Peter Thomas( )

4 editions published in 2008 in German and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die deutschen Finanzdienstleister sehen sich zu Beginn des 21. Jahrhunderts im Retailgeschäft einem immer intensiveren Wettbewerb ausgesetzt; Marktdynamik und Marktstruktur befinden sich in einer nachhaltigen Veränderung. Katalysator dieser Entwicklungen ist der technologische Fortschritt, der einerseits den Anpassungsdruck auf die Finanzdienstleister noch verstärkt, andererseits aber auch neue Handlungsmöglichkeiten eröffnet. Das seit Anfang der 90er Jahre für die industrielle Produktion diskutierte Konzept der kundenindividuellen Massenproduktion, der "Mass Customization", verspricht eine Möglichkeit, den Herausforderungen zu begegnen - insbesondere dem Preiswettbewerb im Retailgeschäft - und darüberhinaus dauerhafte Wettbewerbsvorteile zu generieren. Peter Thomas entwickelt hierzu eine umfassende Adaption des Konzepts auf das Retailgeschäft der Finanzdienstleistungsbranche und zeigt, wie die Umsetzung einer Mass Customization unter Berücksichtigung der Eigenarten von Finanzdienstleistungen erfolgen kann. Über den Autor Peter Thomas promovierte 2008 am Lehrstuhl für Finanzierung und Bankbetriebslehre der Technischen Universität Darmstadt. Er ist seit 2004 als Berater bei McKinsey Company Inc. tätig
