Williams, Garrath (2005) Geoffrey Vickers: philosopher of responsibility. Systems Research and Behavioral Science, 22 (4). pp. 291-298.Full text not available from this repository.
In this article I discuss Geoffrey Vickers' ideas from the perspective of moral and political philosophy. His thought is presented through three key terms, which I suggest can encapsulate his philosophy: (i) our human capacity to respond aptly to our situation; (ii) the analysis of modern society in terms of institutions; and (iii) the moral importance of responsibility to the maintenance of human culture and cooperation.
