9780471948407: Platform for Change

"Stafford Beer is undoubtedly among the world's most provocative, creative, and profound thinkers on the subject of management, and he records his thinking
with a flair that is unmatched. His
writing is as much art as it is science.
He is the most viable system I know."
Dr Russell L Ackoff, The Institute for
Interactive Management, Pennsylvania.
USA.
This is a highly original
book both in content and format. It
presents thirteen `arguments for change',
these are linked by a personal
commentary, and by a deeper,
`metalinguistic', commentary. Platform
for Change is completely
self-contained, does not deal at all with
the nature of viable systems, but is
directed towards the hope that our
planet may yet remain viable--and the
human race survive.

From the Back Cover:

The Stafford Beer Classic Library "Stafford Beer is undoubtedly among the worlds most provocative, creative, and profound thinkers on the subject of management, and he records his thinking with a flair that is unmatched. His writing is as much art as it is science. He is the most viable system I know." Dr Russell L Ackoff, The Institute for Interactive Management, Pennsylvania, USA. "If…anyone can make it [Operations Research] understandably readable and positively interesting it is Stafford Beer…everyone in management…should be grateful to him for using clear and at times elegant English and…even elegant diagrams." The Economist This is a highly original book both in content and format. It presents thirteen ‘arguments for change’, these are linked by a personal commentary, and by a deeper, ‘metalinguistic’, commentary. Platform for Change is completely self-contained, does not deal at all with the nature of viable systems, but is directed towards the hope that our planet may yet remain viable — and the human race survive.
