The Market Disclosure of Being

Laszlo Zsolnai gave a key-note lecture entitled “The Market Disclosure of Being – A Heideggerian Approach to Business” in the Spirituality and Sustainability: New Path to Entrepreneurship international conference in September 21-23, 2012 in Visegrad, Hungary. He argued that despite of Heidegger’s warning not modern technology but modern-day business destroys Being and beings. With its exclusive focus on profit-making modern-day business tends to violate the integrity and diversity of natural ecosystems, the autonomy and culture of local communities, and the chances of future generations for a decent life. To overcome to problem substantive economic thinking is needed which acknowledges the human beings’ patent dependence for their livelihood upon nature and their fellows.
