Howard Schwartz studied philosophy as an undergraduate at Antioch College and in graduate school at the University of Pittsburgh and UCSD. His PhD is in organizational behavior from Cornell University. Schwartz has been interested in the psychodynamics of organizations and has published numerous papers in that area, as well as the book Narcissistic Process and Corporate Decay: The Theory of the Organization Ideal. This has developed into an interest in political correctness and its capacity for the destruction of organization. His second book, The Revolt of the Primitive: An Inquiry into the Roots of Political Correctness  was published in paperback by Transaction Publishers in Fall, 2003. His most recent book is Society against Itself: Political Correctness and Organizational Self-Destruction, published in 2010 by Karnac. Schwartz was one of the founders of the International Society for the Psychoanalytic Study of Organizations (ISPSO). He has been the President of the Michigan Association of Scholars. He joined the faculty at Oakland in 1977.
