"Stafford Beer is undoubtedly among the world's most provocative,creative, and profound thinkers on the subject of management, andhe 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.
