Thoughts on Man (日本語書名『人間を考える』)

(Available only in E-book format)


Konosuke Matsushita engaged in business for more than 80 years, since he was nine years old. He thought about man and society through his long business life and various experiences to seek peace, happiness, and prosperity for the world. This book was originally published in Japanese in 1972, and will give us hints and ideas to the question “What is man and how should man act in society?” He said, “I have limited my discussion in this volume to what seems to me to be the most basic and important aspects of man. I sincerely hope that this book will make a small contribution to the realization of peace, happiness and prosperity.”
