Polysemy Of Organizations And Organization Of Polysemy: A French Approach
AbstractThe concept of organization, as support for collective action, is polysemic, paradoxical, and inevitable. It catalyzes the conflicting perceptions of living together and, in return, we can ask not only how "little arrangements" needed to coexist or to build collective cohesion develop but also how we are integrated into reality. The balance achieved between experience and representation we can have is sometimes a source of discord. This paper considers organization as a social unit, submerged by societal constraints. This unit pursues a social purpose, negotiated with both its external environment, particularly in the fight for resources necessary for its survival, but also with its internal environment through ongoing negotiation of quality. Our developments aims at putting into light this quest which is a paradox, since from sense of convergence emerges discourses mobilized to orchestrate some kind of leak relations, due to instrumented shifts in assembling arguments to reduce the final essence of the subject.
