The contributors to this book review the postindustrial subculture, emphasizing cross-disciplinary and cross-contextual inquiry, a central idiom of postindustrial organizational life. The essays consider alternative methods of understanding media that add variety to 'meanings' within and without organizations. This multi-method approach in the search for meaning and the limits of word and symbols to express meaning generates a personally interpretive basis to science.
