A phenomenology of embodied senses: the 'making' of sense in organisational culture
by Wendelin Küpers
International Journal of Work Organisation and Emotion (IJWOE), Vol. 5, No. 4, 2013

Abstract: Following the recent turn to senses and affect across the social sciences this article discusses the contribution of a phenomenology of senses as bodily and cultural phenomena and discusses their affective, pathic and emotional qualities. Correspondingly, organisations will be interpreted as sensuous embodied socio-cultural life-worlds and the significance of embodied sense-making and bodies at work are discussed. In addition to practical and political implications, perspectives on embodied research practice are offered as part of a sensorialised or sensuous scholarship. Finally, the conclusions address some limitations and perspectives on a phenomenological sense-making orientation.
