Contents: Introduction: What do you really want . . . and what will you do to keep from getting it? -- Part One: The internal languages : building the new machine -- 1. From the language of complaint to the language of commitment -- 2. From the language of blame to the language of personal responsibility -- 3. From the language of New Year's resolutions to the language of competing commitments : diagnosing the immunity to change -- 4.

Running the social languages -- Epilogue: Toward the transformation highway : transcending the limits of the Information Age.Summary: The authors argue that one of the main obstacles to organisational change is the third force of dynamic equilibrium, which too often moves things which have changed back to the way they were. They describe the early chapters of their book as the reflective equivalent of an Outward Bound ropes course : a set of personal experiences for readers to explore how they might work against the tendency to prevent or reverse change. Specifically, they suggest how people can move from the language of complaint to the language of commitment; from the language of blame to the language of personal responsibility; from the language of New Year s resolutions to the language of competing commitments and from the language of big assumptions that hold us to the language of assumptions that we hold.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Moral responsibility and the boundaries of community : power and accountability from a pragmatic point of view /

by Smiley, Marion.

Publisher: Chicago, IL University of Chicago Press 1992Description: x, 286 p. ; 24 cm.Notes: Includes bibliographical references (p. 273-284) and index.Summary: The question of responsibility plays a critical role not only in our attempts to resolve social and political problems, but in our very conceptions of what those problems are. Who, for example, is to blame for apartheid in South Africa? Is the South African government responsible? What about multinational corporations that do business there? Will uncovering the "true facts of the matter" lead us to the right answer? In an argument both compelling and provocative, Marion Smiley demonstrates how attributions of blame--far from being based on an objective process of factual discovery--are instead judgments that we ourselves make on the basis of our own political and social points of view. She argues that our conception of responsibility is a singularly modern one that locates the source of blameworthiness in an individual's free will. After exploring the flaws inherent in this conception, she shows how our judgments of blame evolve out of our configuration of social roles, our conception of communal boundaries, and the distribution of power upon which both are based. The great strength of Smiley's study lies in the way in which it brings together both rigorous philosophical analysis and an appreciation of the dynamics of social and political practice. By developing a pragmatic conception of moral responsibility, this work illustrates both how moral philosophy can enhance our understanding of social and political practices and why reflection on these practices is necessary to the reconstruction of our moral concepts. ; Contents: 1.

Responsibility /

by Hage, Ghassan (ed.) | Eckersley, Robyn (ed.).

Publisher: Carlton, Vic. Melbourne University Press 2012Description: x, 236 p. : ill.Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index.Summary: The concept of responsibility permeates social life. While it has many meanings, they often centre around questions of practical and moral accountability, culpability and liability. One can learn a great deal about a social formation by looking at the way the meanings of responsibility are deployed within it, the way they vary from one social space to another, and the way they are often at the centre of a political struggle over how we define and apportion blame. The essays in this book do more than examine such processes. Each in its own way also invites the reader to push existing assumptions about what individual, political, ecological and corporate responsibility entails.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
