Les Firmes Et Leur Management à Travers La Science Fiction /Science Fiction Stories of the Firm and Its Management
The worlds created in science fiction stories (novels, comics) provide descriptions of firm, company and management. A variety of books reveals a high political signification of the tales displayed, ranging from libertarian defense of entrepreneurs and free enterprise (in the tradition of Ayn Rand) to defiance towards excessive power of global organizations (Dick, Ballard). Science fiction proposes images evoking the possible vicious trends of management techniques taking hold of subjectivities and societies. Sci-Fi happened to inspire politics (Reagan read Rand assiduously). The paper will focus on the high level of political convictions and expressions in that literary domain.
