I am enthusiastic about the 'classical' approach in organization theory and a strong advocate for continually revisiting this earlier texts/authors as a source of inspiration for our scholarship. I think this is a requirement in the social sciences and particularly important in a heterogenous field as management and organization theory which also tends to suffer from a certain 'novelty bias.' I am always keen to hear from folks who may be interested in showcasing the relevance of foundational research in the field of management and organization theory.
