Consumer culture and endless economic growth have been prevailing paradigms for centuries. That must change if the current climate crisis is to be defeated. In his forthcoming book All We Want: Building the Life We Cannot Buy (Doubleday $26), Michael Harris offers a roadmap towards a more humane and healthier future. He brings to the fore three realms through which humans can find deeper meaning: the worlds of craft, the sublime and care. By embracing a new way of life based on these principles, Harris argues we will have far richer lives – and save the environment. Photo by Hudson Hayden. 9780385695206
