    (B) Consciousness is a quality that has always been in the universe. Spiritual and religious approaches assume consciousness has been in the universe all along, e.g. as the 'ground of being', 'creator' or component of an omnipresent 'God'. Panpsychists attribute consciousness to all matter. Idealists contend consciousness. Although the genealogy of organization theory has been re-examined (e.g., Burrell ), the canonical historical narratives of the field (Scott ; Burrell and Morgan ; Hatch and Cunliffe ; Morgan et al. ) locate the emergence of organization theory into the developments within modern social and behavioral science in the ’s.

In his most famous book, The Technological Society, first published in France inEllul develops his concept of technocratic consciousness that he calls "technique." Technique is a technical mindset, a mode of thought whose only preoccupation is achieving maximum efficiency in all spheres of human life.

In this study, the historical development course of classical organization theory has been analyzed carefully. Three well known Classical Management Theories named Scientific, Administrative and Bureaucratic were reviewed in this paper.

For these theories, Taylor. Both Bogdanov’s fiction and his political writings, which were highly influential, suggest that he expected a coming revolution against capitalism to lead to a technocratic society.

A pioneer in the philosophy of technology, Feenberg demonstrates the continuing vitality of the critical theory of the Frankfurt School. He calls into question the anti-technological stance commonly.
