Foucault: His influence over accounting and management research. Building of a map of Foucault's approach
by Eduardo Rivera Vicencio
International Journal of Critical Accounting (IJCA), Vol. 4, No. 5/6, 2012

Abstract: The aim of this work is to build a map of Foucault's approach. To achieve this objective, this work is focused on a broad revision and analysis of accounting and various publications. This work also includes a research on Foucault's work so as to identify and compare the various manifestations of power relationships considered by different researchers. Once these manifestations of power as discourse, discipline, ethics, government, among others, have been identified, the specific influence of each one over accounting and management is determined as an attempt to provide a general view of this critical Foucauldian perspective over the study of organisations.
