Platform for Change Paperback - 1995

by Stafford Beer; Beer


From the rear cover

"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.
