Symposium 2017:Education for the Common Good

The Macau Ricci Institute, 23-24 November, 2017

At the dawn of this 21st century, Peter Drucker made this observation about the common good:

“This is not the first pluralist society in history. But all other earlier pluralistic societies destroyed themselves because no one took care of the common good. They abounded in communities but could not sustain community, let alone create it. If our modern pluralistic society is to escape the same fate, the leaders of all institutions will have to learn to be leaders beyond the walls.” (Peter Drucker, “The New Pluralism,” Leader to Leader, No. 14 Fall 1999).


Our new journal: The Journal of the Macau Ricci Institute is coming on July, 2017
