The Labyrinths of Information

Challenging the Wisdom of Systems

Claudio Ciborra

A reflective discussion of information in the contemporary organization. Current descriptions of the design, implementation, management, and use of information technology in organizations are largely founded on notions of rationality, science, and method. In this volume the author focuses on an alternative center of gravity: human existence in everyday life. While still informed by the author's own research and consultancy work, the volume eschews the overly technical character of much writing about IT in favor of an exploration of the subject through various conceptual prisms.
