Comprises 13 contributions on praxiology, the study of working and doing from the point of view of effectiveness. The three components of praxiology are addressed: analysis of concepts involving purposive actions; critique of modes of action from the viewpoint of efficiency; and normative advisory aspects in recommendations for increasing human efficacy. Representative topics include critical systems heuristics, applications and case studies in learning by action, the relevance of action learning for business ethics, and the case of the Polish environmental movement. Intended for sociologists, philosophers, managers, and researchers of all disciplines. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
