|Title:||Narrative Identity Achieved Through Utterances: The Implications of Bakhtin for Managing Change and Learning||Contributor(s):||Jabri, M (author)||Publication Date:||2005||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/220||Abstract:||Ricoeur's work on narrative has been instrumental in moving the conception of identity from the rational mind (Cartesian) to a text of narratives of meanings, desires, and aspirations. But his effort to question the Cartesian certainty came at a price, namely an excessive emphasis on personhood. This paper explicates the relevance of Bakhtin's notion of dialogue for management by arguing for a critical examination of Ricoeur's centripetal superiority of narrative order in favour of centrifugal encounters based on a Bakhtinian (dialogical) tension, one between an active addressor and an active addressee, rather than an active reciter and a passive listener. Adopting Bakhtin's ideas has clear implications for the management of change and development of learning organisations.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Philosophy of Management, 5(3), p. 47-54||Publisher:||Reason in Practice Limited||Place of Publication:||Surrey UK||ISSN:||1740-3812||Field of Research (FOR):||160899 Sociology not elsewhere classified||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 200
