Example text

15) Part of the impetus for considering the relationship between organisation studies and the human body is the massive growth of literature about the body in the social sciences and humanities over the last couple of decades of the twentieth century. This not only encompasses the newly marked out territory of the `sociology of the body', but also work across anthropology (see, for example, Haraway, 1990b; Martin, 1994), psychology (Stam, 1998), geography (Ainley, 1998), cultural studies (Featherstone, 1991), art history (Callen, 1995) and feminist theory (Butler, 1990, 1993).

10). Anthropology is somewhat different. Where there are language differences, and often considerable difficulties in access to a language (with perhaps no written forms and dictionaries), bodily expression becomes more `visible' and important. However the ways in which the bodies of people from different cultures have been defined and appropriated by the discipline suggests a more political reading. In the quotation from Polhemus (1975, p. 15) which heads the chapter, we can see that even though the body is paid more attention in anthropological studies, it remains the body as constructed through the lens of `western' science and rationality.

The Cartesian split between mind and body has been incorporated into the very heart of the discipline of organisation theory. The need to control the body has been seen as a problem within organisation studies, especially in its more managerialist parts. Solutions to the `problem' of the body have generally been concerned with appealing to the mind and rationality. For example, two of the cornerstones of the discipline ± scientific management and the Human Relations School ± are both concerned with the role of the body in production.
