THE GRADUATE SCHOOLS
Chooses "The Drift and Control of Business" for Topic
Tonight at 7.30 o'clock at the Business School Dr. John Dewey, Professor Emeritus of Philosophy, Columbia University, will speak on "The Drift and Control of Business." This talk, which is under the auspices of the Business School Club, is to be held in the Baker Library.
Dr. Dewey will also include a discussion of the recent book of Dean W. B. Donham '98. The name of this book, "Business Adrift", has a direct correlation with the subject of the speech. The volume, which appeared last week, was heralded as an important work in the business world. It is in general an appeal for foresight on the part of business and for a constructive policy on the part of capital in place of what are aptly described as so many rear-guard engagements.
As introduction to "Business Adrift" there is used a chapter on Foresight, written by A. N. Whitehead, professor of Philosophy. Its general tenor is towards making routine everywhere the basis of our social machine.
