2010-07-25

The author graduated from ESCP-Europe and was part of the “Alternative Management” third year program in HEC in 2010.

This book is the testimony of Pierre Rabhi, farmer and philosopher. In 1960 he chose to to leave the consumer society, which is alienating and dehumanizing. He clearly exposed the weaknesses of our society and invites us to think of a new form of society to change our values, our human relationships, and our link to the earth.
