The present curricular unit uses the following logic of exposition:
1. First, to explain a group of concepts that the student undoubtedly needs in order to deal successfully with the subsequent text;
2. Then, to characterize the evolutionary process of the euro-Atlantic societies, the reality that constitutes the environment of their organizations; trying to emphasize, in that characterization, the evolution of these ones;
3. Finally, to present the organizational theorists of the 20th century, those who intended to characterize and/or to (re)shape the organizational logics and, by inherence, the modern organizations; supporting that presentation in the works of Frederick Winslow Taylor and of Henry Ford.
