In contrast to the positivistic thrust of management science, Hodgkinson (U. of Victoria, BC) introduces a paradigmatic theory of value which can be used for analytic purposes in the daily life of administration--especially educational administration--to address such issues as the application of power, the shaping of people and organizations, the search for better values, the making of choices, and the justification of the administrator's power and acts.
