This book examines business ideas which animate our lives and lie behind earning, spending, saving, producing, owning, and selling. The prolific and always provocative author entrances with his deft and imaginative takes on the myths, the heroics, and the styles of power. Hillman spins out essays on the varied expressions of power including control, prestige, influence, fearsomeness, tyranny, and purism. Two brilliant and highly ethical sections on service and maintenance are worth the price of the whole book. Here Hillman brings caring, things, and the soul of the world together in a startling union. Kinds of Power is vintage Hillman — a dazzling, fresh, and freewheeling assessment of the modern world and its everyday potencies.
