The Horn of Plenty

Volume: 232 pages (English and German in one edition)
Price: 22.00 

How do we define or measure luxury? Not with money or time, but diversity. Yet contemporary modes of living luxuriously have lost sight of this reality. This is why theory is needed to provide a course correction. As in evolution, luxury drives both diversity and a variety of forms in the history of individualism, too. In the same way that natural luxury breeds biodiversity, human luxury breeds ego diversity. Without natural luxury, individual luxury, too, will die out.

The book traces the history of luxury parallel to the evolution of subjectivism and individualism from the 14th century to date.
