    Analysis of a Text and its Representations: Univocal Truth or a Situation of Undecidability?Miriam Green - 2009 - Philosophy of Management 7 (3):27-42.
    This paper is concerned with the representation in academic journal articles and textbooks of an organisation theory. In the case of Burns’ and Stalker’s book The Management of Innovation, summaries of the text by other scholars have arguably differed from the original authors and among themselves in their emphases. Similar points have been made about representations of other theorists such as Kurt Lewin and, perhaps most famously, Adam Smith. They all raise issues about the meanings of texts and where such (...)

    Are Management Texts Produced by Authors or by Readers? Representations of a Contingency Theory.Miriam Green - 2005 - Philosophy of Management 5 (1):85-96.
    This paper addresses representations of Burns and Stalker’s theory that arose soon after its publication in The Management of Innovation in 1961. Different conceptions of Burns and Stalker’s contingency theory as portrayed in organisation and management texts are discussed. It will be argued that what has been represented as their theory stems in the main from ideas based on different positions within the spectrum of the positivistic, functionalist ‘paradigm’.

    Can Deconstructing Paradigms Be Used as a Method For Deconstructing Texts?Miriam Green - 2012 - Philosophy of Management 11 (2):85-113.
    Problems surrounding representations of texts have previously been raised and discussed, as has the difficulty, in the light of hermeneutic, critical and post-structuralist writers, of arriving at definitive meanings of texts. This paper is part of ongoing research into the problem of evaluating the representation of original texts in the organisation/management area. The texts in question are Burns and Stalker’s The Management of Innovation 1961, 1966, and to alesser degree Lawrence and Lorsch’s Organization and Environment 1967. The representations are those (...)

  5. Neoliberalism and Management Scholarship: Educational Implications.Miriam Green - 2016 - Philosophy of Management 15 (3):183-201.
    Mainstream management scholarship has for the last half century largely legitimated its scholarship and production of knowledge on the grounds that its research is objective, neutral, scientific and uninfluenced either by its researchers or by data distorted by subjectivist human factors. However, over the decades there have been serious and sustained criticisms of aspects of this scholarship not least from within the field by mainstream scholars, eg Otley and Panozzo on grounds of the inadequacy of synchronic studies that were found (...)
