The essai examines how Borges' narrative fiction may contribute to a reconceptualization of organizational interpretation and representation, and thus complexify the thinking of both organizational theorists and practitioners. This exploration is siatuated against a background of an increasing awareness of the fictionality of organizational life, and a sensitivity towards the representational practices employed by organizational scholars as they seek to construct persuasive accounts of the theory and practice of organization.
