Philosophical and theoretical perspectives of organisational structures as information processing systems

Discusses some of the philosophical ideas about knowledge and applies them to organizational design and information processing in order to create new ideas and new ways of thinking. Explains how this can be achieved by a discussion of the issues surrounding organizational design and the impact of design on information processing. Reviews the ideas concerning the theory of knowledge proposed by rationalists, such as Descartes and empiricists, such as Locke and how these relate to other epistemological theories such as historicism and pragmatism. Concludes by discussing the means by which philosophical theories of knowledge can assist towards new considerations of information processing
