On Freedom: Organizational Science Examined Philosophically

Scientific Freedom, Intellectual Freedom, Moral Freedom, Political Freedom, Spiriitual Freedom

A few words about the organization of this book. It follows what can be described as a narrative, in that it moves in stages, each of which combines more than one objective. This is evident, for example, in the first chapter on Scientific Freedom, which endeavors to situate "organization" within a philosophical tradition, the introduction of concepts that have moved organization to science, and the struggle of this science with ethical neutrality--all of which are more confusing to address when treated as separate topics. In an earlier attempt to break this manuscript into topic headings, my impression was that it subtracted from more than added to its clarity. If the narrative, standing alone, could not speak for itself, it probably needed to be reworked. Titles vary with the interest of the intended audience, and I concluded that this book might be of interest to more than one audience--specifically to one interested philosophically in freedom and another interested in a science of organization. - from the author's Preface
