Most widely held works by Willem H Vanderburg
Our war on ourselves rethinking science, technology, and economic growth by Willem H Vanderburg( file )
6 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 941 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

On being rich and poor : Christianity in a time of economic globalization by Jacques Ellul( Book )
4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 155 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
On freedom, love, and power by Jacques Ellul( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 154 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."--Pub. desc
