From the Publisher
Concerned with the hope that our planet may yet remain viable and the human race survive, this highly original book contains 13 arguments for change which are linked by personal and deeper metalinguistic commentaries.
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.
