Segal, S.; Cicmil, S.; Rolfe, B. (2016)
Languages: English
Types: Unknown
In this paper we explore how existential hermeneutic (and philosophical questioning more broadly) might provide a deeper understanding of manifestations of epistemic violence in project-based organising and project management practice, and the possibility of working thought the existential disruptions to our own underlying conventions and assumptions, towards emancipatory transformative redefinition in everyday practice (Alvesson and Deetz, 2000). It is narrated in the spirit of existential questioning (Heidegger, 1993, 1996; Douglas-Mullen, 1995; Segal, 2015) and attends to a ‘lived experience’ of one of the authors in his existential struggle to reconnect with his practice as project manager (MacIntire 1988, Introna 1997).
