Magalhães R. & Sanchez R. (2009) Autopoiesis theory and organization: An overview. In: Magalhães R. & Sanchez R. (eds.) Autopoiesis in organization theory and practice. Emerald, Bingley UK: 3–25. Fulltext at
Excerpt: This introductory chapter elaborates some of the key ideas which shaped the concept of this book. The overriding idea is that autopoiesis theory has the potential to provide a unifying framework for the study of organizational phenomena in the 21st century. Although organization studies have recently had no shortage of new paradigms and approaches – such as postmodernism, phenomenology, ethnomethodology, reflexivity, and critical theory – the field seems to be expanding in ways that make it increasingly difficult to comprehend, especially for the uninitiated.
