Speaking management: how to spot language traps and resolve contested management terms

McGrath, Stephen Keith (2021) Speaking management: how to spot language traps and resolve contested management terms. Springer Nature, Singapore. ISBN 978-981-16-2212-0


Abstract

Explores the philosophy of definition to develop a theory of meaning with the potential to bring the tool called language under human control.

Provides a basis for dissolving conflict that does not require any conflict resolution, personal growth, compromise, meditation or religious or political conversion.

Presents a model for communicating about the exercise of power.

Exposes the widespread tendency for specialists to generalize without due regard to the consequences outside their field.
