Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in libroChapter


The contribution proposes a reflection on the relevance of Thompson’s work to modern times, from the perspective of Work and Organizational Psychology (WOP). The aim is to call for a renewed approach to the development of organizational theory in the WOP field. The examination of the relationship between Thompson’s work and psychology is developed according to two lines of study: the first sought to identify in Thompson’s contribution influences and traces of the psychological culture of his time; the second focused on the highlighting of anticipations and clues, echoes of which are found in subsequent theoretical frameworks in WOP.
