Description

The Dauphine Phenomenology Workshop (DPW) is an annual event focused on continental philosophies and their relationships with social sciences in general, and Management and Organization Studies in particular. Although primarily interested in phenomenologies and post-phenomenologies, our agora also covers all major philosophical ventures linked to continental philosophy and post-continental philosophy and their relationships with MOS.

This year, we would like to come back to the critique of phenomenologies in the course of the 20th centuries. Many contemporary philosophers (e.g. Bergson, Deleuze, Braidotti…) have built their thought in reaction and/or against phenomenology[1], in particular traditional orthodox phenomenology and its core concepts such as consciousness, eidetic reduction, perception and intentionality. Whereas this critique has also existed from the inside of phenomenology[2] with Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty or Arendt among others, post-modern thinkers, process philosophers and some post-Marxist have radicalized this deconstruction, which has opened the way more explicitly to an ontological reversal[3] (subjectivity is secondary to the event),  a disappearance of traditional subjectivity and subjectivation (‘indiscernible’, ‘evasive’, highly or too ‘epiphenomenal’) but also more questionable critiques in view of the directions of non-orthodox phenomenologies, post-phenomenologies or more qualified interpretations of Husserl’s work.

In the context of this 6th Dauphine Phenomenology, we would like to explore the possibility of these critiques, paradoxes and sometimes, misreadings about phenomenologies and post-phenomenologies. We would like to build a conversation between phenomenologists, post-phenomenologists (discontinuing phenomenological core but claiming to stay in a form of phenomenological venture) and anti-phenomenologists (building an alternative in reaction and against phenomenology). In views of recent research such as those of Michel Foucault, Judith Revel, Peter Sloderdijk, Petr Praesek, Giambo Agamben or Judith Butler, continuities, interweaving and synergies may be much more important than enacted by some historiographies of the 60s, 70s and 80s have defended.

We want to explore here these issues and draw implications for Management and Organizations Studies. Discussions about the following topics will be particularly (but not exclusively) appreciated:

 

  • Ethics and morality of organizing;
  • Subjectivation, ethos and agentivity from the inside of organizing;
  • Identity, multiple selves and organizing;
  • Multiplicity and organizing;
  • Materiality, digitality and organizing;
  • Materiality, becoming and organizing;
  • Art and art-based research;
  • Aesthetics and organizing;
  • Spacing and emplacement at stake in organizing;
  • Atmosphere and affects in organizing;
  • Strategy and strategizing as experiences;
  • Opening and oppresses of organizing;
  • Project management and project dynamics;
  • Entrepreneurial processes and entrepreneurial events.

[1] With sometimes major misunderstandings about what was meant by Husserl in his use of concepts such as “reduction”, “intention” (and intentionality of consciousness), “protention”, “retention”, etc.

[2] And has contributed to a renewal of the field of phenomenology itself, and through these growths and discontinuities, the birth or renewal of other fields of thoughts inside and beyond philosophy.

[3] Which is also part of the thoughts of the late Heidegger and Merleau-Ponty from the withing of phenomenological traditions.
