Sample text

Utopians and Marxists see the whole of society as being corrupt and disorganised. It is incapable, therefore, of being reformed, and the only solution to disorganisation is to completely change society and thus a blueprint for a new society is required. A disjunction between the old and new arrangements is required, and as the old society has failed there is no place for any of its processes in the new. By one leap, a systematic reconstruction, welfare will be attained, and because the blueprint for this is comprehensive it is not envisaged that there will be disorganisation once the reconstruction according to this design has been completed.

Social planning It follows that as integration becomes the speciality of social administration the integrative features of social policy and planning fall under its purview. As integration is a driving force in society - with tasks arising from discrepancies in expectations, roles and positions in every sphere - this means also that through social policy and planning social administration must be concerned with the state of culture, the economy and the polity. Thus social planning includes alteration to social structure and national and local attitudes as well as social services.

Other considerations apart, and which follow, the notion may be said to be faintly ridiculous in the context of the social sciences where demarcation lines between the various disciplines are so vague. In fact many social-science disciplines could be said to be in constant danger of conceptual annihilation by the expansion of those disciplines most closely related to them. Thus, whilst it may be possible to make social administration disappear into the sociology of welfare, the economics of welfare, the politics of welfare (and so on), it may be equally feasible to make sociology disappear into social history, social psychology, social anthropology, economics and political science.
