Example text

The vocabulary of business science at a given time and place will be a function of the state of the technique-language, the fact-language and the theoretical languages. If we consider, with S. I. Hayakawa (1939, 1941)6 that a scientific doctrine is expressed by a coherent and specific language and that, reciprocally, a system of words on which agreement is reached explicitly or implicitly defines a school without ambiguity, 7 then we shall not be surprised at the number and variety of schools which have followed Taylorism, after a succession of technical and socio-economical upheavals.

Direction is sometimes confused with management, although the former term, in contrast to the latter, does not generally belong to the technique-language and is rarely attached to the theoretical language. Problems of Terminology 17 The direction does not concern itself with principles or techniques; it can call on these with the help of specialised services or advisers; its object is the firm as a living or concrete entity. Work study, which must not be confused with organisation (which designates either the structure of the firm, or the method of organising that structure) belongs to the theoretical language when it is a body of more or less scientific concepts, and to the technique-language, by reason of its arsenal of techniques for improving prcductivity.

The latter, though they may be useful and suited to some needs (they are not always so), nevertheless rest on bases which are artificial or even totally arbitrary. But these divisions, these criteria and these concepts, which are at the origin of words, are also in return designated by words and defined by groups of words. It is a matter of the 'enclosure' of the semantic world such that it is impossible to refer to things in order to explain signs. 2 An example is the chain of definitions in a dictionary which leads us back to the point of departure after many detours.
