Unpacking the Dialectic: Alternative Views on the Discourse–Materiality Relationship

Linda L. Putnam

Journal of Management Studies, 2015, vol. 52, issue 5, 706-716

Abstract: This paper extends the issues raised in this forum by highlighting assumptions and characteristics of the discourse–materiality relationship that appears in five explanatory frameworks, including the Foucauldian approach and the materiality–performativity perspective presented in the previous two papers. It argues for preserving the dialectical relationship between the two by holding the tensions between them in continual interplay. Using a dialectic lens, it overviews how each of the frameworks treats the point of entry, nature of the relationship, and management of these tensions.
