Nonsense (n.) ˈnän(t)-sən(t)s
Having no meaning or conveying no intelligible ideas. Neither true by definition or fact.
Welcome to the Nonsense Dialogues. "Dialogues" because we would like to think we sound like Socrates and Plato at the Academy. "Nonsense" because we think we sound like the great sceptics - Hume, Wittgenstein, Kant and so on. Actually, neither is true. We just like to argue about organisational and social psychological theory and practice in an invariably vain attempt to figure out what works and to complain about the myths, half-truths and just plain wrong shite that pass as good science and good practice in the workplace. And we are just conceited and deluded enough to think that someone else may be interested in listening to us do so.
Two old sceptics
