In recent years there has been an increase in interest in the impact of philosophy on organization studies and the value of philosophy for improving our understanding of management and organization. This edited collection indicates the current state of the art of reflection on the concepts and process of organizing using ideas and analytical approaches drawn from a range of philosophical traditions and paradigms. There is a focus on the ways that complex and elusive organizational processes are represented, the ways in which philosophical ideas can be used to theorize organization and the future of an organization theory informed by philosophical reflection.
