Interpretatywne rozumienie kultury w naukach o zarządzaniu

Title variants
An Interpretive Understanding of Culture in the Management Sciences
Languages of publication
Kultura stanowi konstytutywne pojęcie dla nurtu interpretatywno-symbolicznego, nazywanego również interakcjonizmem symbolicznym. Celem artykułu jest analiza rozwoju koncepcji interpretatywno-symbolicznych w dyskursie kulturowym w naukach o zarządzaniu. Paradygmat interpretatywno-symboliczny jest jedną z najważniejszych orientacji nauk humanistycznych, takich jak: antropologia kulturowa i socjologia, dla których właśnie kultura jest pojęciem fundamentalnym. Dla pogłębionej analizy problematyki kulturowej w zarządzaniu z perspektywy interpretatywno-symbolicznej przeprowadzono badanie rozwoju tego nurtu oraz stopniowego przenikania jego koncepcji do teorii, metodologii i praktyki organizacyjnej.
Culture is a constitutive concept of the interpretative–symbolic current, also known as symbolic interactionism. The purpose of this article is to analyze the development of the concept of symbolic–interpretative cultural discourse in the management sciences. The interpretative symbolic paradigm is a major orientation in the humanities—i.e. anthropology and the sociology of culture—for which culture is the fundamental concept. An analysis of the development of this trend and the gradual penetration of the concept into the theory, methodology, and organizational practices was conducted to receive an in–depth look at cultural issues in management from the interpretative–symbolic perspective.
