In this seminar, Professor Philippe Lorino from ESSEC Business School will focus on a specific aspect of pragmatist thought: the pragmatist approach to temporality and sociality, in particular Dewey and Bentley’s concept of “trans-action” and Mead’s philosophy of temporality. He will suggest that Mead’s notion of sociality simultaneously entails a definition of temporality, as the constant emergence of new events leading to the ongoing re-invention of the past and the future. The discussion will be illustrated with examples from professor Lorino's research on management and organizations.
