Unity, not uniformity, must be our aim. - MPF
David Holzmer and I have a special issue of a journal coming out this year looking at the intersection of leadership and complexity theories. There is a place for a 'classic' article reprint and I would like to start a discussion about which of MPF's writings we might feature.
We would very much like to make some connections between MPF's work and Paul Cilliers' argument that only modest claims for ostensibly unknowable conditions exist, and that we need to be careful about the reach of our knowledge claims as well as the constraints that make any such claims possible (2002 p. 256). Both MPF and Cilliers were quietly, yet defiantly, critiquing a seeming addiction to certainty that underpins rational modes of thinking.
Your suggestions are most welcome, and I hope these ideas will spark some interesting discusssion.

Thanks Albie, we'll take a look at your 'Follett on Facts' paper.
