  • The corporation is a legal device that enables its owners to obtain individual profit without individual liability. Examines the Phillips Petroleum Corporation and the corporate mind--its attitudes, goals and ethics. It is paternalistic, inspires loyalty, shapes attitudes, enforces rules, rewards and punishes. As a reward for conformity the corporation provides its personnel and their families with swimming pools, gyms, bowling alleys, thrift and savings plans, insurance, retirement pensions, pins, watches and, in election years, political advice.
