Crepuscolo di un idolo. Smantellare le favole freudiane by Michel Onfray PDF

Michel Onfray, coerente con sé stesso, prende di mira in questo libro una religione che, ancor più dei monoteismi del suo Trattato di ateologia, sembra dover ancora avere vita lunga e felice. Questa religione è los angeles psicoanalisi, e più in particolare il freudismo. L’idea di Onfray è semplice e radicale: Freud ha tentato di costruire una scienza e non vi è riuscito; ha voluto provare che l’inconscio ha le sue leggi, los angeles sua logica intrinseca, può essere studiato mediante protocolli che riteneva scientifici, e tuttavia ha mentito, consistent with potersi fregiare degli emblemi della scientificità.

Statistical data – at the national level, about vocational training, employment, and mobility, particularly from series of manpower surveys of the European Economic Community, and – at the organization level, about age, seniority, wages, grading, qualifications, authority, education, and training of individuals, from enterprise personnel records. 2. Qualitative data – in the form of organization charts and supplementary information about enterprise history and industrial relations procedures, and – in the form of qualitative interviews whereby ‘strings’ of the production hierarchy, from production director down to a leading hand, were interviewed about their tasks, career, communications, industrial relations, functional place in the organization, and work characteristics, particularly management activity.

Nor will we proceed in a deterministic way. This would only increase the dilemma of comparative organization studies highlighted by Hickson et al. (1979). Instead, we want to show that societal factors make a difference of a qualitative kind. Reporting the findings of a study preliminary but similar to those reported here (Silvestre 1974), and commenting on comparative organizational research, Brossard and Maurice (1974) had posited the ‘societal effect approach’ for studying organizations. It makes for an extension of organizational research into the WESTERN EUROPE 43 interaction of people at work, work characteristics of jobs, systems of recruitment, education, training, remuneration, and industrial relations.

Thus the societal-effect approach is a systemic analysis of social action which emphasizes the interconnections between different social spheres such as manufacturing, industrial relations, education, training; it recognizes that constellations of such interconnections can only be explored by considering historical and ecological factors. Again, we stress that this is not theoretical particularism, but an acknowledgement that the extension of our study to additional countries is likely to enrich our systematic grasp of events.
