Georg Schilling "salus" - a Greek (!) word?! - a few reflections on a worl of Claus Otto Scharmer (MIT
“salus” – a Greek word?! – a few reflections on a work of Claus Otto Scharmer (MIT) …
The following text is a short review of Claus Otto Scharmer’s work “Theory U – Leading From the Future as it Emerges. The social technology of the presencing” (Cambridge, Massachusetts: SoL (The Society of Organizational Learning, Inc., 2007). In it, words e.g. of Latin origin can also be found. As I will mention at the end of my short reflections, there is a mistake in Scharmer's work concerning one origin of the word "Salutogenesis" (cf. 469).
@ First of all: there can be very much said and reflected concerning this huge work of Scharmer. Insofar, just a few reflections concerning this work which deals with many topics.
@“Theory U – Leading From the Future as it Emerges” consists especially of 3 parts. Part I (“Bumping into Our Blind Spot”, p. 21-116), Part II (“Entering the U Field”, p. 119-226), and Part III (“Presencing: A Social Technology for Leading Profound Innovation and Change”, p. 231-462). In the foreword by Peter M. Senge, Senge cites Martin Buber (cf. p xiii). Unfortunately, Senge does not give a (clear) reference where and when Buber wrote (or said) what Senge cites. This is also the case when Senge cites Arie de Geus, not giving a (clear) reference where and when de Geus said what Senge cites in his foreword (cf. p. xv). Senge also writes “Although many academic books expound theories, they usually represent their author’s thinking but not their lived experience.” (cf. p. xvii). He does not write which academic books he thinks of. Furthermore: could it e.g. not be debatable whether at least some theories of the authors (which ones?) represent (at least to a certain extent?) the lived experience?
@Scharmer’s work also deals with questions of music (cf. 196, where Peter M. Senge is quoted speaking about music; cf. furthermore 426). In the index (cf. 522) the word “music” is only mentioned with p. 426-427, p. 196 is not mentioned in the index. Why?
@Scharmer’s book also contains an optical livening-up e.g. through included graphics (cf. e.g. 37, FIGURE 2.4. THE OPENING PROCESS OF THE U, or cf. e.g. 66, FIGURE 4.4 TWELVE MANAGEMENT FUNCTIONS: UPSTREAM VIEW) and a picture of a photo by Dieter Schwerdtle (cf. 440, THE SCULPTURE “7000 OAKS” BY JOSEPH BEUYS, photo by Dieter Schwerdtle.
@ Scharmer’s work also contains a glossary of some words (cf. 463-470). @In the bibliography part of Scharmer’s work, a book of Ronald Harry Coase is also mentioned but – in contrast to other works mentioned in Scharmer’s bibliography (cf 487-510) – Coase’s forename (Ronald) is abbreviated (cf 490). Why? @Scharmer’s work also contains a glossary (cf. 463-470). Among other words, the word Salutogenesis (cf. 469) is also mentioned in this glossary. "[...] (the term salutogenesis comes from the Greek [sic] salut = health, and genesis = development)” is written on page 469 of Scharmer’s work. If one is not mistaken, “saluto-” does not come from a Greek word “salut” but from the Latin word “salus” which has several meanings, one of them is (e.g.) “health”.

@To sum it up: here could be written much more about this work – these are just a few words concerning just a few aspects of this book ... (gs)
