Sociological Paradigms and Organisational AIlalysis. Elements of the SocioloRY of Corporate L({e. lecturer in the Department of Behaviour in Organisations, University of lancaster, England. The book is intended to clarify and help overcome what seem to be some of the major sources of confusion within the social sciences at the present time. Initially it had a fairly specific objec-tive: to attempt to relate theories of organisation to their wider sociological conteJlt.

Burrell, . & Morgan, G. Sociological Paradigms and Organizational Analysis, Heinemann, 1979, 1-37. This has been the primary paradigm for organizational study. In this introduction the authors develop a 2x2 matrix scheme to help classify and understand existing sociological theories based on four major paradigms. It assumes rational human action and believes one can understand organizational behavior through hypothesis testing. Interpretive Paradigm (n). This paradigm "seeks to explain the stability of behavior from the individual's viewpoint".

The authors argue in this book that social theory can usefully be conceived in terms of four broad paradigms, based upon different . Each stands in its own right, and generates its own distinctive approach to the analysis of social life.

The authors argue in this book that social theory can usefully be conceived in terms of four broad paradigms, based upon different sets of meta-theoretical assumptions with regard to the nature of social science and the nature of society. The four paradigms - Functionalist, Interpretive, Radical Humanist and Radical Structuralist - derive from quite distinct intellectual traditions, and present four mutually exclusive views of the social work.

This model of organizational analysis developed by Burrell and Morgan classifies sociological theories along the two orthogonal dimensions of regulation vs. change and subjectivity vs. objectivity (Burrell & Morgan, 1979). This divides sociology into four fairly distinct paradigm clusters. There is internal consistency under each paradigm, in terms of assumptions about individuals, groups, societies, goals of study and accepted forms of evidence.

For the contents of this book, there's no denying that it's a sound book. However, the quality of the paper is such bad.

Quite simply, this book changed my life. I was in PhD school, with past BS in Psych, Soc, Criminology and MBA in Finance/Cost Acctg whe I discovered I HAD a world view! How pathetic is that and yet, that's the American experience. We in this country do not seem to value, or even recognize, other ways of viewing the world and how that plays out in everything we do (including academic research). This book should be bronzed and made required reading for every DBA and PhD in the world! Maybe if more people appreciated the basic cultural messages in this book, there would be fewer wars.
The absolute classic of theory of organization. The book reveals hidden assumptions made by the organizations' members, the beliefs of 'consultants' or researchers - and divides the presumptions into four separate categories (named 'paradigms' after Kuhn's specification). The authors brilliantly show, how the paradigms influence our perceptions and the ways we look at the organizations. All the approaches are fairly exemplified. The pros and cons of every paradigm become evident. A different light is shed on many famous theories and on the root methodology itself. The book should definitely be an obligatory lecture of management and sociology students - the managers and consultants can pick something for the as well.
