This article reports out the results of employing a different lens through which to view common organizational forms, from bureaucracies to learning communities. Structural and processual aspects of the most common organizational forms are discussed. The article draws upon recent advances in the fields of primatology and neuro-psychology in its illumination of the characteristics and, especially, the hindrances of, for example, dominance and social status hierarchies. These different views of organizations and their forms hold immediate relevance for, especially, education, and for other forms of human association as well.
