Book description

The Routledge Companion to Philosophy in Organization Studies provides a wide-ranging overview of the significance of philosophy in organizations. The volume brings together a veritable "who’s-who" of scholars that are acclaimed international experts in their specialist subject within organizational studies and philosophy.

The contributions to this collection are grouped into three distinct sections:

  • Foundations - exploring philosophical building blocks with which organizational researchers need to become familiar.
  • Theories - representing some of the dominant traditions in organizational studies, and how they are dealt with philosophically.
  • Topics – examining the issues, themes and topics relevant to understanding how philosophy infuses organization studies.

Primarily aimed at students and academics associated with business schools and organizational research, The Routledge Companion to Philosophy in Organization Studies is a valuable reference source for anyone engaged in this field.
