Description

See the full course description here

After an introductive session dedicated to the foundations of epistemology and the emergence of management as a "science", the course will explore the main branches in fundamental epistemology:

  1. Positivsme and neopositivism (Popper, Kuhn, Lakatos);
  2. Systemism, structuralism and post-structuralism (Luhmann, Bourdieu and Foucault);
  3. Phenomenology and hermeneutics (Weber, Merleau-Ponty, Schütz, Goffman, Giddens);
  4. Radical constructivism (Bloor, Latour, Garfinkel, others). It will then be dedicated to the presentations of current works in epistemology applied to management. Getting inspiration from the Critical Management Studies (CMS) movement, it will finally conclude on the notion of "critics" applied to management.
