The Social Psychology of Industry: Human Relations in the Factory

Excerpt

The title of this book adequately indicates its scope. It is concerned basically with the emotional aspects of human inter-relationships in industry, and lays no claim to be a study of industrial psychology as such. Nor does it set out specifically to give practical details of what might be done to improve conditions in industry. What I have tried to do is to put forward for the consideration of the factory manager, the personel manager, the time and motion engineer, and the interested layman certain fundamental aspects of 'human nature' and social organization which must be taken into account by anyone attempting to reorganize factory life.

In a book which touches on such varied subjects as psychology, history, medicine, anthropology, economics, and the practice of management, much of what is said will appear painfully elementary to those with expert knowledge of one or other of these subjects. I can only hope that it does not also appear erroneous.
