The Mary Parker Follett Network

Unity, not uniformity, must be our aim. - MPF

I believe that Mary Parker Follet has brought to humanity a universal truth expressed in actions of the words given.


As humanity grows in its self-understanding, its ability to move forward in life's journey; will evolve with the purpose for the betterment of the whole.


This will lead our human culture, to be more inclusive, to be increasing transparent, and communication systems break down the everyday dualities that come about from assumptions not accurate data. 


I believe that this will ultimately lead us to Free Cities, where as entire populace of a given community will learn about equality, respect and stewardship. This will naturally bring about increased cooperation as opposed to indoctrination.

Hello Robert.  Welcome to the MPF network.  I am extremely interested in what you have said above.  I have a Follett article "in progress" titled Conscious Evolution:  Mary Parker Follett takes us beyond Darwin toward ever-evolving democratic processes.  I had intended it to be ready for the Normandy Conversations, but, instead I became lost in the topic, since she has so much to say of value along these lines.  I know a simple article is needed, and I couldn't find the time to make it short.

In the spirit of the wonderful Normandy Conversations (THANK YOU SEBASTEIN DAMART & EMMANUEL GROUTEL!) I have found the quote by Pascal which sums up my problem in both English and French, which I do not speak, but am determined to learn! 

I have made this letter longer than usual, because I lack the time to make it short (Je n'ai fait celle-ci plus longue parceque je n'ai pas eu le loisir de la faire plus courte)~Blaise Pascal, Lettres Provinciales (1656-1657), no. 16.
I would love to hear more about your thoughts on this topic!  My email is:
