Organisation Macht Subjekt

Genre: Business & Economics

Das Verhältnis zwischen Organisation und Mensch hat sich seit der Industrialisierung grundlegend verändert. Vergleicht man die Organisation der Arbeit in Büros und Fabrikhallen in großen Konzernen heute mit den nach tayloristischen Prinzipien gestalteten Arbeitsräumen im frühen 20. Jahrhundert, erscheint Arbeit weitgehend freigesetzt aus rigiden Strukturen. Doch die Stechuhren und festen Bürozeiten sind lediglich subtileren Managementmethoden gewichen. Nancy Richters an Friedrich Nietzsche und Michel Foucault orientierte Machtanalytik zeigt genealogisch auf, wie organisationale Praktiken in unterschiedlichen historischen Abschnitten zur Konstruktion und Konstitution von Arbeitssubjekten beitragen. Rationalisierung erscheint hierbei als strukturelle Konstante, die heute bestenfalls vom Arbeitnehmer verinnerlicht wird. Die Studie trägt damit zur Arbeits- und Organisationsforschung ebenso bei wie zum in Deutschland noch wenig etablierten Forschungsfeld der kritischen Managementforschung (Critical Management Studies).

Pause for Transition

Author: Bart Landheer
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9789401193658
Release Date: 2012-12-06
Genre: Philosophy

The idea of the present study is basically a simple one. It attempts to reconcile the concept of social evolution with that of the structural unity of Man, an idea that is becoming increasingly dominant in the exact as well as in the social sciences. The idea of structure as it emerges from the social field is applied to the human mind as the ultimate cause of society. While pragmatism interpreted the mind as reacting as a whole, the concept of structure places the relation of Man versus his Environment in a different light, and attempts to determine the possible limits of social development. These problems are analyzed in a number of introductory chapters while the basic approach is illustrated by an analysis of some aspects of the growth of Western civilization. Some fictitious "case-studies" have been added in order to leave room for an imaginative interpretation which sometimes can bring out points which are more difficult to explain in "objective" language.

Die Industrielle Gesellschaft Und Ihre Zukunft

Author: Theodore Kaczynski
Publisher: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform
ISBN: 1721022457
Release Date: 2018-09-12
Genre:

Industrial Society and Its Future / The Unabomber Manifesto (2010) in deutscher Sprache. "1. Die industrielle Revolution und ihre Folgen waren ein Desaster für das menschliche Geschlecht. Sie haben die Lebenserwartung derjenigen von uns, die in "fortschrittlichen" Ländern leben, stark erhöht, aber sie haben die Gesellschaft destabilisiert, haben das Leben unerfüllt gemacht, Menschen Demütigungen unterworfen, zu weit verbreiteten psychischem Leiden geführt (in der Dritten Welt ebenso zu physischem Leiden) und haben der Natur einen schweren Schaden zugefügt. Die fortschreitende Entwicklung der Technologie wird die Situation verschlechtern. Sie wird den Menschen sicherlich größeren Demütigungen unterwerfen und der natürlichen Welt größeren Schaden zufügen, sie wird wahrscheinlich zu größeren sozialen Störungen und psychischen Leiden führen und sie dürfte sogar in "fortschrittlichen" Ländern zu erhöhtem körperlichen Leiden führen."

Ideology and Social Order

Author: Eric Carlton
Publisher: London ; Boston : Routledge & K. Paul
ISBN: UOM:39015008870415
Release Date: 1977
Genre: Athens (Greece)

Truly interdisciplinary work between Sociology and History is rare, because one discipline usually exploits the concerns or data of the other. In this work the author brings together the distinctive orientations of sociology and ancient history into a clearly written discussion of concerns crucial to both disciplines. Based on a comparative analysis or two pre-industrial civilisations, Ancient Egypt and Classical Athens, the study is primarily concerned with three issues. The first is the relationship between belief and action: does belief (intellectualised as ideology) affect or determine social behaviour? Second, the author examines the ways in which belief contributes to stability and 'good order' in society, and asks to what extent such factors as social status and social change are related to institutionalised mechanisms of social control. Finally, he indicates possible sociological frameworks or models which are ideological rather than stratificatory, whereby complex pre-industrial systems might be analysed.--Publisher's description.
