This item jaridimos not yet published. It is available for pre-orders and will ship on 13 January When it comes to the field of organization and management theory, a philosophical perspective enables us to conduct organizational research imbued with the attitude of ‘wonder’; it helps researchers question dominant images of thought underlying mainstream thinking, and provides fresh distinctions that enable the development of new theory.

Haridimos Tsoukas

In bringing together a collection of key essays by Haridimos Tsoukas, this volume explores fundamental txoukas, such as organizational tsokuas, that have gained currency in the field, as well as revisiting traditional concepts such as change, strategy, and organization. It discusses organizational knowledge, judgment, and reflection-in-action, and, at the meta-theoretical level, suggests complex forms of theorizing that do justice to the complexity of organizations.

The conceptual attention throughout is on process and practice, underlain by performative phenomenology and an emphasis on agents’ lived experience.

This provides us with the language to appreciate the dynamic character of organizational behaviour, the embeddedness of action, and the complexity of organizational life. The theoretical claims presented in this volume have important implications for practice, insofar as they help retrain our attention; from seeing structures and individuals, we can now appreciate processes, experiences, and practices.


A phenomenological attitude makes organization theory more open, more creative, and more reflexive, and this book will be essential reading for researchers and students in the field of organization studies. Organization and Strategy tsouka. Insights from Cornelius Castoriadis 2.

He is interested in, among other things, practical reason and the epistemology of practice, and applying process and phenomenological perspectives to organization theory.

Haridimos Tsoukas

Bringing together 16 articles published over approximately a decade, this useful collection shows the development of Tsoukas’ thinking as a process scholar and introduces us to the philosophical perspectives and empirical studies that have informed that development.

I have long drawn on his clear and compelling philosophical insights to inform my own work and am delighted to see this collection of his papers brought together so that we may draw upon them as a corpus of work to further inform developments in organization theory.

He does this in a highly accessible and readable way that enriches our understanding and helps us see the subtlety and value of philosophy to organization theory. It is wonderful to see Tsoukas’ insightful body of work inspired by ideas from Aristotle, Bergson, Castoriadis, Heidegger, Whitehead, Wittgenstein and many others brought together in a single collection.


This insightful and timely volume features prominent essays of his from the past decade that engage philosophy in an attempt to better understand organizational phenomena.

Collectively, hzridimos bear witness to the philosophical dimensions of organization and management theory while richly articulating Tsoukas’ own unique performative phenomenology that combines phenomenological, process theoretical, and Wittgensteinian ideas.
