Overview

Tsoukas (organizational studies, U. of Warwick, UK) presents a collection of previously-published essays and conference presentations which he wrote or co-authored during the past decade. The text employs Gregory Bateson's view of epistemology to examine the notion of organizational knowledge. Coverage includes the different forms of organizational knowledge and the forms of life in which they are embedded; the nature of tacit knowledge; the limitations of a purely information-based understanding of knowledge; the implications for organizations when the latter are seen as makers of knowledge claims put forward for public adoption; the problems of a Cartesian understanding of knowledge; aspects of organizational complexity; and meta-theoretical issues in organizational and management research. For academics, researchers, and students of knowledge management, organization studies, management studies, strategic management, and applied epistemology.
