Human Sciences Technology: Ways of Solving Problems in the Human Domain.
Prinsloo, R. J., Ed.
This book covers a representative sample of the types of technology developed by the South African Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC). It is divided into five sections: (1) "Introduction" (Andries R. van den Berg); (2) "Technology for Education and Training" (A. Cecilia Bouwer); (3) "Technology for Managing Human Resources" (Terry R. Taylor); (4) "Human Sciences Technology in Managing Problems Arising from Social Issues" (Arie G. Oberholster); and (5) "Future Perspectives" (Roelf J. Prinsloo). The aim of the book is to indicate social and organizational needs that could be addressed through human sciences technology. This publication serves three functions: to create a greater awareness of the fact that the human sciences need not be restricted to describing and explaining what is going on in society; to stimulate students in the human sciences with a listing of a wide array of technology; and to promote cooperation with other professionals and stakeholders in utilizing the potential of the human sciences to improve the quality of life of all South Africans. References are included with each section. (TMK)
