Mary Parker Follet: “This is the reality for man: the unifying of differings.” It it through this integration that new configurations occur and both individual and collective progress occurs...Because of the constant motion of assemblages within the whole, [Follett] does not “ignore the part of disintegration in the creative process...disruption may be a real moment in integration... This point ought to be much further developed, for it would prevent us from too superficial an optimism... yet disruption is only a part of that total life process to which, in its more comprehensive aspect, we may give the name integration...coadapting means always that the fresh unity becomes the pole of fresh difference which leads again to new unities...” (Stout and Love, forthcoming).
