    Science fiction and organization


    Smith, W, Higgins, M, Parker, M & Lightfoot, G, 2003, ‘Science fiction and organization’. Taylor & Francis Group


    Science fiction can be seen as a diagnosis of the present, and a vision of possible futures. It therefore provides an excellent resource with which to interrogate both contemporary organizing processes and organizations as institutions. The marginal activity of science fiction has, however, been largely ignored in writing on organization theory. This international collection is the first book of its kind to explore how science fiction can enrich studies of organization by drawing on perspectives across the arts and social sciences.
