ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study which attempts to capture building a liberal organization. The act of social construction is negentropic and affects both psychological and social forces. Important human needs that extend beyond material satisfaction, need to be understood in understanding human sociology. Human wishes and needs become human actions which get institutionalized. But human institutions become subject to laws of their own. Humanist psychology sees motivation in terms of whole laws expressing a dialectic of development. For the development of skills and competence, work is a major area. Within the system, the style and structure of the major organizations is similar as it is based on an identical generating image.
