Being Quantum

Ontological Storytelling in the Age of Antenarrative

Editor(s): David M. Boje, Tonya L. Henderson

Book Description

Being Quantum: Ontological Storytelling in the Age of Antenarrative is the first collection of its kind in the newly emerging quantum storytelling genre. Quantum storytelling provides an approach to organizational change based on interconnectedness, embeddedness, and entanglement. This volume offers the reader a collection of thoughtful perspectives on organization development, each inspired by quantum physics and its influence on human thought. Chapters are organized into four sections, addressing concepts related to time, space, matter, and spirituality. Each chapter addresses multiple areas to present the reader with a deeply interconnected series of analytical and interpretive pieces that bring quantum storytelling to life.
