VARGAS-HERNANDEZ, José G.. Modernity, Post-structuralism and PostModernism in the International Administration Theories. Encontros Científicos [online]. 2009, n.5, pp.180-192. ISSN 1646-2408.

The purpose of this paper is to analyze theories of international management centered on modernity and postmodernity as an expression of corresponding organizational theories. Starting from the rationality of modern organization elements, it advances the organizational analysis in more complex and uncertain environments in the context of economic globalization processes which finally lead to profound cultural transformations which affect the local managerial practices of organizations operating in the international realm. It has adopted a critical and inquiry position of managerial theories based on western epistemology which have sense in the no western context such as postmodernism which still is examining the rest of the world in western terms.

Palavras-chave : International Management; Modernity; Post-structuralism; Postmodernity.
