I am the Director of the CSO and a Full Professor of social and organisational studies at Grenoble Ecole de Management. My research spans across anthropology, management studies, political philosophy, social theory and sociology. To date, three grand questions have guided my work. Firstly, how are contemporary organisations conducive to dehumanisation?  Secondly, how are social norms legitimated or contested? Thirdly, how can philosophy benefit the human and social sciences?

I have co-edited the first two volumes in the CSO’s Future of the Human closed book series: Realist Responses to Post-Human Society: Ex Machina (with Prof. J. Morgan) and Post-Human Institutions and Organizations: Confronting the Matrix (with Prof. E. Lazega).

Recent publications include articles in the Academy of Management Learning and Education; British Journal of Sociology; Business Ethics Quarterly; Cambridge Journal of Economics; Human Relations; Journal for the Theory of Social Behaviour; Organization and Organization Studies.

  1. Hi Ismael

    I was in touch years ago with Margaret and Roy in the context of our work on Integral Research, which we apply across the world, especially in Africa and the Middle East. I am assuming form your name that you come from the Arab/Islamic world, and we would love to see critical realism rooted in that part of the world
    Look forward to hearing from you


  2. Dear Professor Lessem,
    I’ve only just discovered CSO and this website, so excuse my ignorance of the history these share. I read your message as a wish ‘to see CR rooted’ in Africa and the Middle East, as perhaps the wish that CR is seen AS rooted in the Middle East, and even further back to its Vedic, Buddhist, Taoist contexts.

    I regret that like so many messages, this may be ‘lost in translation’, and we end up in a mess, and shooting the messengers, unable to identify messiah!!

    With best wishes,
