The Social Psychology of Industry.

"In recent years it is becoming increasingly apparent that the classical approach to industrial psychology is inadequate. This approach regarded the worker primarily as a machine to be studied by the techniques of physiological psychology and as an isolated individual whose aptitudes caused him to be suited or unsuited for a given job. The results obtained by such an approach are not necessarily wrong, but, as Elton Mayo demonstrated conclusively more than twenty years ago, they are bound to be incomplete because the 'isolated' human being is a fiction. Since each individual is a member of society and each worker a member of a working group, the attitudes of these groups are bound to play a large part in influencing his behaviour both as citizen and worker. This book makes no attempt to replace other text-books on industrial psychology; it should rather be regarded as an attempt to supply the reader with an understanding of the social background of industry. Believing that if we begin with the wrong assumptions no amount of accurate research can produce the correct answers, the author has tried to discuss such fundamental questions as: what is human nature? what causes men to work? what is morale? and what influence has the nature of industrial work upon the mental health of the individual worker and his community?"--Cover.
