Con-versing on Management's Public Place
University of Kalmar, Baltic Business School.
1990 (English)In: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 6, no 4, p. 285-307Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

The postmodern condition denotes a state in which the relativization of the knowledge and truth attached to the discourses of the social sciences appears to be provoking growing frustration and discontent. The emerging postmodern discourses represent this discontent, while at the same time underlining the problem of the ontological human knowledge. This article is an attempt to introduce the con-versational mode of knowing to the public place of management, with distanceas a fundamental ingredient. The aim is to see the present as remarkable, and management and organizations as peculiar practices to be problematized not naturalized, to situate current “truths” contextually and temporally, and to trace their correlated economies and emergence. The article also explores the significance of this problematique and discusses the contribution of the writings of some of the major postmodern thinkers.
