Reading the Technological Society to Understand the Mechanization of Values and Its Ontological Consequences – Dirk Lindebaum et al.

Dirk Lindebaum, Senior Professor in Management & Organisation at Grenoble Ecole de Management, together with his co-authors Christine Moser of Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, Mehreen Ashraf of Cardiff Business School & Vern L. Glaser of University of Alberta, has recently published an article in the Academy of Management Review, entitled Reading the Technological Society to Understand the Mechanization of Values and Its Ontological Consequences.

The CSO is glad to share this essay article. It creatively reviews Jacques Ellul’s book The Technological Society to develop theories at the intersection of ‘technique’, ethics, organisations, institutions, and ontology.
