The scope for the examination of behaviour in organisations is very wide. There are a multiplicity of interrelated factors which influence the behaviour and performance of people as members of a work organisation. It is important to recognise the role of management as an integrating activity and as the cornerstone of organisational effectiveness. People and organisations need each other.
The manager needs to understand the main influences on behaviour in work organisations and the nature of the people–organisation relationship.

Aristoteles - Moral

...los suyos propios, esto es, los de comer y, beber. Son, por lo contrario, olores que nos encantan por sí mismos, los de las flores, por ejemplo. Stratónico tenía razón al decir que, entre los olores, unos tienen un bello perfume y otros un perfume agradable. Por lo demás, los animales, en materia de gusto, no gozan de un placer tan completo como podría creerse. No gustan de las cosas que hacen impresión solamente en la extremidad de la lengua; y gustan sobre todo de las que obran sobre el gaznate; y la sensación que experimentan se parece más bien a la de tacto que a un verdadero gusto.

En resumen, puede decirse que, en general, la intemperancia se refiere por entero al sentido del tacto. Asimismo, puede decirse que el intemperante lo es en las cosas de esta clase. La borrachera, la glotonería, la lujuria, la relajación y todos los excesos de este género sólo se refieren a los sentidos que acabamos de indicar y que comprenden todas las divisiones que se pueden reconocer en la intemperancia. A nadie se le llama intemperante y estragado a cansa de las sensaciones de la vista, ni de las del oído o del olor, aunque se las procure en demasía. Todo lo que puede hacerse con estos últimos excesos es censurarlos, sin despreciar por esto al que los comete, como se censuran, en general, todas las acciones en que uno no sabe......
