Foucault and rationality

Foucault and rationality

(p.1) 1 Foucault and rationality
Reason's Neglect

Barbara Townley

Oxford University Press

This chapter begins by presenting the author's reasons for writing this book on rationality. It argues that Foucault's work provides both an entrée into the analysis of rationality and a template with which to approach its use in organization studies. It then provides an excursus into reason and rationality and its modes of expression and use in organization studies.

Keywords:   rationality, reason, Foucault
