Overview

This investigation of the fundamental character of organizational identity and identification with an organization is arranged in the form of a provocative discussion between key scholars.

The book focuses on three different paradigmatic views of identity: functionalist, interpretive and postmodern. Similarities and distinctions among these ways of understanding are explored, and numerous theoretical and practical insights are gained. The book concludes with a discussion of the relevance of identity as a construct in organizational study, and observations on conversation and theory building.
