The sciences of the artificial by Herbert A Simon( Book )

"Continuing his exploration of the organization of complexity and the science of design, this new edition of Herbert Simon's classic work on artificial intelligence adds a chapter that sorts out the current themes and tools -- chaos, adaptive systems, genetic algorithms -- for analyzing complexity and complex systems. There are updates throughout the book as well. These take into account important advances in cognitive psychology and the science of design while confirming and extending the book's basic thesis: that a physical symbol system has the necessary and sufficient means for intelligent action. The chapter 'Economic Reality' has also been revised to reflect a change in emphasis in Simon's thinking about the respective roles of organizations and markets in economic systems."--Publisher's description
Organizations by James G March( Book )

86 editions published between 1958 and 2014 in 9 languages and held by 1,837 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mit dem vorliegenden Band wollen wir ein bereits klassisch gewordenes Werk dem deutschen Sprachgebiet zugänglich machen. Das Buch bietet eine Zusammenfassung der bedeutendsten Literatur über Organisationen und versucht einen Überblick über die verschiedenen Organisationstheorien zu geben. Die Autoren übernehmen es, diese Theorien, ihre Bedeurung und ihren Zweck darzulegen und liefern dabei eine eigene Interpretation der grundlegenden Theorien des menschlichen Verhaltens in Organi sationen. Das Buch läßt sich in drei Hauptteile gliedern. Ausgangspunkt bildet die Betrachtung des Indi viduums als Insttument und physiologischer Automat - eine für die "Wissenschaftliche Be triebsführung" typische Ansicht. Anschließend beschäftigen sich die Autoren mit motivationa len und affektiven Aspekten des menschlichen Verhaltens in Organisationen. Dabei stützen sie ihre Aussagen auf umfangreiches empirisches Untersuchungsmaterial. Den Abschluß des Buches bilden Theorien über kognitive Prozesse des organisatorischen Verhaltens. Hier bewegen sie sich zum Teil noch auf reichlich unerforschtem Neuland. Das Buch fUgt sich daher hervorragend in unsere Schriftenreihe ein und - obwohl bereits ein klassisches Werk - ist es eine zeitlose Informationsquelle für den Wissenschaftler, da es eine gedrängte, aber geordnete Zusammenfassung der wichtigsten Organisationstheorien mit Anregungen zu weiterer Forschungstätigkeit bietet, für den Praktiker, da es ihm hilft, die Komplexität moderner Großorganisationen besser zu erkennen, was zu einem besseren Verständnis seiner eigenen Organi sationsprobleme führen kann, für den Studenten, der sich für die soziale Welt der Organisationen, die ja später auch sein Leben beeinflussen werden, interessiert
The new science of management decision by Herbert A Simon( Book )

58 editions published between 1950 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 1,440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"My research activities during the past decade have brought me into contact with developments in the use of electronic digital computers. These computers are startling even in a world that takes atomic energy and the prospects of space travel in its stride. The computer and the new decision-making techniques associated with it are bringing changes in white-collar, executive, and professional work as momentous as those the introduction of machinery has brought to manual jobs. The invitation extended to me by the School of Commerce, Accounts, and Finance of New York University, to spend some weeks there as Ford Distinguished Visiting Professor and to deliver a series of public lectures, provided me a welcome opportunity to reflect about the organizational and social implications of these rapid technical developments. The lectures, slightly expanded here from the form of their public presentation, record the product--a very speculative product--of my reflections"--Preface.

We respect Herbert A. Simon as an established leader of empirical and logical analysis in the human sciences while we happily think of him as also the loner; of course he works with many colleagues but none can match him. He has been writing fruitfully and steadily for four decades in many fields, among them psychology, logic, decision theory, economics, computer science, management, production engineering, information and control theory, operations research, confirmation theory, and we must have omitted several. With all of them, he is at once the technical scientist and the philosophical critic and analyst. When writing of decisions and actions, he is at the interface of philosophy of science, decision theory, philosophy of the specific social sciences, and inventory theory (itself, for him, at the interface of economic theory, production engineering and information theory). When writing on causality, he is at the interface of methodology, metaphysics, logic and philosophy of physics, systems theory, and so on. Not that the interdisciplinary is his orthodoxy; we are delighted that he has chosen to include in this book both his early and little-appreciated treatment of straightforward philosophy of physics - the axioms of Newtonian mechanics, and also his fine papers on pure confirmation theory

La connaissance des processus rationnels, la planification et l'innovation font l'objet des derniers développements. Une mise à jour de la bibliographie aurait ajouté à la valeur de l'ouvrage
