The Oxford Handbook of Organization Theory

Meta-theoretical Perspectives

Edited by Haridimos Tsoukas and Christian Knudsen

Oxford Handbooks

This book provides a forum for leading researchers in organization theory to reflect on their own discipline: how it has developed and why; what sort of knowledge claims it regards as acceptable and why; and where it may be or should be going. Focussing on organization theory, the aim of this volume is to hold up for examination its key assumptions and knowledge claims, the chief explanatory strategies used, its relationship with the real world and the future of organization theory. The book is divided into five sections under the following heading: Organization Theory as Science; The Construction of Organization Theory; Meta-theoretical Controversies in Organization Theory; Organization Theory as a Policy Science and The Future of Organization Theory.
