The Evolving Corporation: A Humanist Interpretation by William J. Cook



ISBN: 1567202799; Издательство: Quorum Books. Long the dominant organization of western civilization, the modern corporation is now obsolete, says Cook, and is being replaced by a new system of human organization, one that reflects no less than the changing aspects of society itself. Cook's eloquent, elegant analysis and critique offers a true challenge to corporations, calling them a rationalistic contradiction of religion and science that is unsustainable. His book is a provocative contribution to the professional and academic literature of several fields, including management, the social sciences, organizational behavior, development, history, and will have special interest to certain well informed nonspecialists with an interest in the role played by corporations in their societies.

The Evolving Corporation : A Humanist Interpretation. The corporation model of organizations is in terminal decline, says Cook, and is being displaced by what he calls syntagma, a body of persons forming a division of the population of a country. The point he makes by this is that the emerging organization will be no artifact, no fabrication. It will be innately human, and in that sense, organic.

In this book, William Cook takes readers on a mathematical excursion, picking up the salesman's trail in the 1800s when Irish mathematician W. R. Hamilton first defined the problem, and venturing to the furthest limits of today's state-of-the-art attempts to solve it. He also explores its many important applications, from genome sequencing and designing computer processors to arranging music and hunting for planets.

In addition, the book introduced some interesting innovations of applied value to clustering literature. Journal of Classification. This is a very good, easy-to-read, and practical book. It has many nice features and is highly recommended for students and practitioners in various fields of study. An introduction to the practical application of cluster analysis, this text presents a selection of methods that together can deal with most applications. These methods are chosen for their robustness, consistency, and general applicability.

The corporation model of organizations is in terminal decline, says Cook, and is being displaced by what he calls syntagma, a body of persons forming a division of the population of a country. The point he makes by this is that the emerging organization will be no artifact, no fabrication. It will be innately human, and in that sense, organic. His book traces the philosophical and historical development of the modern corporation through Hellenistic-Judeo-Christian theologies, with particular emphases on the social, political, and economic impacts of rationalistic science, impacts such as humanism, democracy, capitalism, and behaviorism. Cook offers an analysis of the critical aspects of the corporation as it exists today, and draws heavily for evidence upon contemporary management theories and practices. In doing so he argues that it is the radical changes going on in society itself that is rendering the traditional corporation obsolete. And, since western civilization is undergoing an epochal shift, the new, emerging corporation can have no resemblance to the old model. He maintains that the organization evolving to replace it will be characterized by common values, mutual purpose, excess capacity, and creative action, and will have two dynamics, what he calls commensuration and essentiality. Only with this kind of human system is it possible to create an organization that solely and exclusively serves the common good. His book is a provocative contribution to the professional and academic literature of several fields, including management, the social sciences, organizational behavior, development, and history, and will be of particular interest as well to certain well informed nonspecialists with concern for the role played the corporation in their societies.
