CICSHAL, in cooperation with Kresearch, are about to publish the book: Para pensar el desarrollo social sostenible: múltiples enfoques, un mismo objetivo, by Luna-Nemecio, J.


Given the degree of complexity and interconnection of economic, political, cultural, scientific, technological, environmental, and physical and emotional health problems that humanity is currently experiencing throughout the planet, it has come to be considered that the development of today's society has reached a stage where it has to find the necessary means to be able to carry out its social reproduction in the midst of a crisis of civilization in which each and every one of the subjects' spheres of vital affirmation finds serious limits that, as the degree of development of the capitalist system advances, become increasingly difficult to overcome.
