Answering Levinas’ call in organization studies

Abstract : This article aims at answering Levinas' call for a radical ethical stance in the field of organization studies, in which he has been increasingly mentioned in the past decade. Starting with an examination of the main aspects of his phenomenology (alterity, unconditional responsibility towards the Other, diakonia), this paper outlines the potential contribution of a Levinassian perspective to refine our understanding of organizations. We question the conditions of transferability of his radical ethics to managerial practices and present two main avenues of research that could be renewed: benevolent management and organizational justice.
