Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

Change: Principles of Problem Formation and Problem Resolution deals with the age-old questions of persistence and change in human affairs. More particularly, it is concerned with how problems arise, and how they are perpetuated in some instances and resolved in others. Most of all, it examines how, paradoxically, common sense and "logical" behavior often fail, while actions as "illogical" and "unreasonable" as thos taken by the defenders of Hochosterwitz succeed in producing a desired change.

"We find that in deliberate intervention into human problems the most prqagmatic approach is not the question why? but what?; that is, what is being done here and now to effect a change?" Pg. 86
