Dehumanized Theories and the Humanization of Work.
Friedlander, Frank
This paper argues that current theories and concepts of organization and organization psychology as represented in journals and books are inadequate in dealing with major contemporary behavioral and societal issues. The topics discussed in this paper include the relevance of organization theory; the fragmentation of organization theory (structure and process, role behavior, formal systems, and quantification and simplification); the subjugation of the individual in organization theory (sociology, clinical psychology, industrial psychology, leadership and control, motivaton and control, management science, and research); the social power of organization theory; and the social and personal bases for organization theory.
