Fairclough, Norman (2005) Peripheral vision: Discourse Analysis in Organization Studies: The case for Critical Realism. Organization Studies, 26 (6). pp. 915-939. ISSN 0170-8406Full text not available from this repository.
Although studies of organization certainly need to include analysis of discourse, one prominent tendency within current research on organizational discourse limits its value for organizational studies through a commitment to postmodernism and extreme versions of social constructivism. I argue that a version of critical discourse analysis based on a critical realist social ontology is potentially of greater value to organization studies, and I refer in particular to the contribution it can make to research on organizational change.
