Part of the International series on the quality of working life book series (IQWL, volume 1)


In the classical approaches to science we seek to understand phenomena and events, which are in some form systematically recorded, in terms of a theory. The objects of our theory are assumed to be passive, and so unable to complain about the way in which we construe or treat them. This approach is not entirely adequate even in the physical and natural sciences. The way in which we apprehend, construe and treat objects depends on the intentions, purposes and aims which we pursue.
