Most widely held works by Willem H Vanderburg
Perspectives on our age : Jacques Ellul speaks on his life and work by Jacques Ellul( Book )
16 editions published between 1981 and 2011 in English and held by 557 libraries worldwide
Originally broadcast on CBC Radio's Ideas as a series of interviews, Jacques Ellul's first-person approach here makes his ideas accessible to readers looking for new ways of understanding our society, and also gives unique new insight into Ellul's life, his work, and the origins and development of his beliefs and theories. Jacques Ellul, historian, theologian, and sociologist, was one of the foremost and widely known contemporary critics of modern technological society
The growth of minds and cultures : a unified theory of the structure of human experience by Willem H Vanderburg( Book )
9 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 399 libraries worldwide
"In the second edition of this publication the author examines the growth of children's minds and their relationship to culture, their structures of experience act as as a kind of 'mental map' which is individually unique and culturally typical. A society can thus be understood as an ensemble based on a culture which creates the foundation for a coherent way of life, permitting large numbers of people to live together. Vanderburg shows how the culture of a society underlies its science, technology, economy, social structure, political institutions, morality, religion and art. As such it seeks to build bridges not only between the 'two cultures' but between all the sciences in order to gain a deeper understanding of our age."--
The labyrinth of technology by Willem H Vanderburg( Book )
11 editions published between 2000 and 2015 in English and held by 313 libraries worldwide
Exposing the limitations of conventional approaches to the engineering and regulation of technology, Vanderburg suggests that the solution lies in a preventive strategy that situates technological growth in its human, societal, and biospheric contexts
The labyrinth of technology by Willem H Vanderburg( Book )
8 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 301 libraries worldwide
Living in the Labyrinth of Technology argues that the twenty-first century will be dominated by a pattern of re-creating human life in the image of technology unless society intervenes on human (as opposed to technical) terms
On freedom, love, and power by Jacques Ellul( Book )
7 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 226 libraries worldwide
Ellul's evaluation of a number of interrelated books of Scripture, including Genesis, Job, Matthew, and John, challenges Jewish and Christian orthodoxies and more progressive interpretations alike by claiming that the Judeo-Christian tradition is both anti-moral and anti-religious. Promoting a life based on freedom and love, Ellul's thinking opens the door to, in his words, "thinking globally and acting locally."--Résumé de l'éditeur
Healthy cities : an annotated bibliography by Namir Khan( Book )
5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 213 libraries worldwide
On being rich and poor : Christianity in a time of economic globalization by Jacques Ellul( Book )
5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 206 libraries worldwide
In these talks, Ellul observes that some of the harshest language in the Jewish and Christian Bibles is reserved for those who are rich and powerful, and thus able to bend others to their will. Through his analysis of the prophetic vision of Amos and the epistle of James, Ellul exposes the gap between the principles of Christian life and the practices of the modern world. Critiquing a world that values domination over collaboration, he offers an alternative path
Our war on ourselves : rethinking science, technology, and economic growth by Willem H Vanderburg( Book )
9 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 205 libraries worldwide
"Our approach to knowing and doing is based on delegating physical phenomena to physicists, biological phenomena to biologists, social phenomena to sociologists, economic phenomena to economists, and so on. This approach to knowledge and practice works very well when one category of phenomena dominates (as in mechanical and technical systems), but does not work when many categories of phenomena make significant contributions (as in the biological and cultural spheres). As a result, our civilization succeeds in its scientific and technical endeavours yet fails in dealing with communities and ecosystems

4 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 86 libraries worldwide
"This bibliography is the latest in a series focused on improving health conditions. This fourth volume addresses work environments, bringing together diverse sources of literature that support effective approaches to good work design and organization. Healthy Work: An Annotated Bibliography provides an overview of relevant literature to engineers, managers, accountants, occupational health and safety specialists, and industrial hygienists, so that they and other professionals can understand why our workplaces have become primary sources of physical and mental illness. By concentrating on diagnostic and prescriptive approaches, managers can implement designs and decisions that prevent, or greatly reduce, undesired and harmful effects."--Jacket

"In the second edition of this publication the author examines the growth of children's minds and their relationship to culture, their structures of experience act as as a kind of 'mental map' which is individually unique and culturally typical.

Our battle for the human spirit : scientific knowing, technical doing, and daily living by Willem H Vanderburg( file )
1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
"Western society has become saturated with scientific and technological modes of thinking that impact our lives and our relationships. Expanding social inequality, the use of social media and the rise of mental illnesses such as anxiety and depression are manifestations of this shift in our civilization. Our Battle for the Human Spirit is a comprehensive probe into what is happening to human life in the beginning of the 21st century. It explores how culture, experience, and symbolization have been replaced by scientific, discipline-based, approaches. Willem H. Vanderburg argues that these approaches are inadequate in understanding the complexity of human lives and societies. In order to transcend these limits, Vanderburg calls for the reintegration of culture and symbolization into our daily lives."--
