Foucault, Management and Organization Theory

From Panopticon to Technologies of Self

by McKinlay, Alan; Starkey, Ken P;

Description
This volume draws together critical assessments of Michel Foucault's contribution to our understanding of the making and remaking of the modern organization.

The volume provides a valuable summary of Foucault's contribution to organization theory, which also challenges the conventions of traditional organizational analysis. By applying Foucauldian concepts such as discipline, surveillance and power//knowledge, the authors shed new light on the genesis of the modern organization and raise fresh questions about organization theory. The bureaucratic career is, for example, analyzed as a disciplinary device, a mechanism that seeks to alter rational choice rather than constrain bodies. This raises questions about Foucault's link
