Power without Glory: a Genealogy of a Management Decision

    Research output: Book/ReportBookResearch

    Abstract

    This book is about power and language in organizations. Its purpose is, more specifically, to develop and apply a method for exploring power in organizations where organizations are conceptualized by drawing on Wittgenstein’s concept of language games. The method is genealogy and is closely linked to Foucault’s conception of power. The book is written with one main purpose—to highlight some aspects of Foucault’s conception of power that, in my opinion, are not sufficiently explored in extant organization studies: Genealogy and the practices of power.
