Images of HRD. Symposium 4. [Concurrent Symposium Session at AHRD Annual Conference, 2000.]
This document contains three papers from a symposium on images of human resource development (HRD) that was conducted as part of a conference on HRD. "Analyzing HRD through Metaphor: Why, How, and Some Likely Findings" (Darren C. Short) examines the question of what the uses of metaphor in HRD say about how those in the field view the world and how that view might be limiting and presents an argument for completing an analysis of HRD metaphor, a framework for the analysis, and examples of what such an analysis might reveal. "Scientific Paradigms and Their Implications for a Vision of HR/HRD" (Alice E. McAndrew) discusses how paradigms from the fields of physics, biology, and chemistry can provide "new lenses" through which to view the field of HR/HRD by echoing themes of increasing roles for consciousness, holism, and interconnectedness in our universe. "The Meaning of the Meaning of Work: A Literature Review Analysis" (Neal Chalofsky), examines the state of research concerning the concept of the meaning of work by proceeding from the theoretical foundation of the content motivation theorists and focuses on what research reveals about the meaning of work as a motivational construct. All three papers contain substantial bibliographies. (MN)
