Managing, Subjectivities and Desires
The position that no particular theory, whether a theory of lack or one of intensity, can grasp what is most important about desire is extended and located in the context of a formal organization, dealing in particular with managerial subjectivities. The concerns ventilated are related to action research, in particular the concern for understanding management and organization and engaging in a process of change — here called interfering and making a difference. Social theory here is seen as a set of stories and theorizing as a political activity: ontological politics.
