Only briefly, since I have to catch a plane: I only tried to give an

point of view), because you mentioned it and Graham asked for it.
Yes, I did. Thank you for writing about it. If I haven't replied it is
only because the discussion is one that is new to me and I'm just
rather not answer your questions, since this would start the same
discussion again. Several people on the German list tried to answer you,
but you dismissed their answers. I, for instance, pointed out my position
with reference to Adorno's concept of organisation (excerpt in German:
<http://www.oekonux.de/liste/archive/msg06288.html>) and do not have the
time and energy to repeat all this in English.
If there is anyone with access to a good library the excerpts come from:
Adorno, Th. W. 1995 : Individuum und Organisation. In: Th. W.
Adorno, Soziologische Schriften I, hrsg. v. Rolf Tiedemann,
Frankfurt/M., S. 440-456:
If a translation of this exists, it is presumably:
Adorno, Th. W 'The Individual and Organisation' in 'Sociological Writings
of Th. Adorno' edited by Rolf Tiedemann
so it might be easy for someone to post the relevant bits ;-)
('what is organization', 'on the humanisation of organisation',
