Desire is a rich term meaning wish and want, willingness and relish, appetite and lust. This volume is an effort to analyze the concept of desire and its different practical contexts from a morally philosophic point of view. By analyzing multiple definitions and studying underlying motivations, the authors offer a variety of explanations and interpretations. The volume consists of three main parts. The first part, â Desire and Practice,â examines desire as a mental state that seeks personal satisfaction. The second part of the volume, â Desire and Moral Life,â explores social, cultural, and literary facets of desire. Finally, in the third part, â Business Ethics and Other Contexts,â the authors apply praxiological principles to the business world, examining the conflict between frugality and consumerist ideology, the role of intuition in decision-making, and the need for design education as the basis of effective planning. The contributors to this, the newest volume in Transactionâ s Praxiology series, seek to explore desire in praxiological terms, with an eye toward the three Eâ s of praxiology: ethics, effectiveness, and efficiency. In doing so, they demonstrate that desire is central for practical activity in general and work in particular.
