Authors: Rinaldo C. Michelini (DIMEC Universita di Genova, Italy) 
Book Description:
The current division between industrialized and developing countries/societies is based on relatively recent paradigms of mankind’s growth which have occurred within the so-called industrial revolution. Actually, the "INDUSTRY" paradigms, at least, in their original formulation, lead to rather unstable growth, being based on the transformation effectiveness, through which the natural capital is used, to be reshaped in value to consumables, and quickly disposed in waste and pollution. The book explores alternatives, in which the «KNOWLEDGE» paradigms might support further wealth build-up, based on the value chains in intangibles, and, possibly, on the "COGNITIVE" revolution, where the transformation efficiency, this time, applies not only on material inanimate resources, rather as well as on artificial life deployments. The analyses move reconsidering the "INDUSTRY" patterns in their contingencies, typically, related with the western world cultural background and organization style. The experienced context, perhaps explains why industrialism appeared in mankind’s history with narrow timing and localization outcomes. It might be used, nonetheless, to explore alternative outlooks on how restructuring the world to come, with collaborative altruism, in lieu of competitive challenge, to make further growth possible.
