Consulting work in organizations led to a discovery that had ramifications far beyond anything that I first imagined. I saw that there was a natural «spiral» trajectory which enabled a leader to strengthen the management culture.
Henri David Thoreau (1817-1862) noted: "It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see."
The Spiral is based on plotting in a particular way, a way that Jimmy forcefully persuaded me to see , given it was knowledge established over decades in the management literature. How wrong I was then, but how right I was to listen to him. Still, it took me decades till I understood the fundamentals of that plot, now called a TET: Typology Essences Table.
The Q-expansion of the has been worked out provisionally. It seems valuable, but has not been developed in detail.
The Frameworks are accorded a high priority as they are intrinsic to healthy work arrangements, personal achievement within organizations, and the effectiveness of management generally.

inquiring systems interested me as they showed a parallel to the [ ].was an early topic of interest as I was in the midst of academia and it was my job to inquire. Churchman and Mitroff’s work on
I tackled the Primary Hierarchy initially, identifying Levels 1-5 and writing it up for publication. Churchman was the referee for Systems Research who approved the paper: Measurement and the Structure of Scientific Analysis.
I subsequently concluded that Churchman’s 5 «Inquiring Systems» were correct, being both beautifully described and placed in a THEE-style order [ ]. I was then able to add two additional systems [ ]—which were required following the discovery of two more Levels in the Primary Hierarchy. This study was also published by Systems Research.
Churchman had used philosophers' names: Lockean (L'1), Leibnizian (L'2), Kantian (L'3), Hegelian (L'4), Singerian (L'5). I felt forced, sadly, to re-name them to be more descriptive and understandable by less erudite readers.

Sois not "doing something" or "finding oneself or the endeavour in a particular condition". It seems to be about determining and enabling a specific state of existence.
There is a lot of material and some provisional Frameworks, much of it illuminating and some of it probably valid. However, there are no current plans to post.
Despite this, progress has occurred, and current understanding has been sufficient to support most of the investigations within the Architecture Room.

Often there has been what seems like great progress, but then something looks wrong and I am right at least about one thing. It is wrong!

My initiation intocame from an appreciation of political ideologies: these, at their hidden centre, seemed to be about change or not changing, as well as other social fundamentals. I still hold to that view.
Based on that I determined that the Principal Typology dealt with and contained « - »—otherwise how would anyone know any change had occurred? But I recently had to re-order the approaches in the light of the Primary Hierarchy, whose ordering has now had some validation in the TOP Studio.
Hierarchic patterns here have been gratifyingly enlightening on many matters (e.g. Q-hierarchies.), while being rather frustrating in terms of formal analysis. Nothing at all is known about the

The Primary Hierarchy is known, but only the Principal Typology has been developed in detail. This Framework of approaches to ( ) was worked out and presented in numerous settings in the early 1990s. It was finally published in Ch.7 of Working with Values (1995), which is available for free download here.
There are many frameworks here that would surely be relevant to understanding personal growth, and perhaps other matters. I use a vague term like "other matters" because: a regular feature of THEE Frameworks is that is quite difficult to know what is going to be discovered, until you actually start exploring in depth and discovering things.
More recently, the Typology was placed in the taxonomic context and renamed. As a result, details of this domain are being posted in 2015.
I started my medical career in psychiatry and immediately gravitated to its psychotherapeutic aspects. This led to a great deal of reading in the area.
Training to be a psychoanalyst exposed me to the intense conflicts between different theoretical schools. I finally worked out that this must be a version of the hostility that characterizes adherents of different identity-defining THEE-Types.
I made my own psychoanalytic contributions blithely ignorant of THEE factors and my inner biases. However, when I came to look at in the late 1980s, it was rather easy to see that it dealt with different ways of being a person i.e. developing one’s own identity based on experiences and identifications.

Socially, purposes are statements that specify a future state of affairs to be realized via endeavour. They help bring the future state into existence.includes values i.e. all values are purposive in nature, but not all purposes are values.
The main frameworks have been developed and published in Working with Values (1995). They will be posted in due course. Until that time, the principal Chapters and Tables can be downloaded free from this website.
When I was surrounded in the mid-80s with my notes and pictures, I realized that no-one was going to believe any of it unless it was worked out carefully and in detail with citations to key authors. I therefore picked one area that I intuitively felt was important, «», and spent the next 10 years discovering what it was about and writing it up in detail.
The result was in Working with Values: Software of the Mind. I learned a lot including a realization that, despite striking into an area that was new to me, I had accidentally hit the jackpot in terms of social significance and practical relevance.

The task in this Satellite requires us to turn away from the internal differentiations and complexities of these 7 entities. Instead, we must treat each as a simple entity-element in its own right i.e. as a «Once we start, I trust it will become clearer.» or a « ». Each entity-level then contributes to a truly human macro-perspective on our endeavours.
