In today’s globalized postmodern world, the traditional ways of researching the organizational, social and political workings of accounting, control and governance systems have lost much of their robustness. In consequence, a few accounting scholars have looked to poststructuralist developments, including their philosophical presuppositions, in the social sciences and humanities for newer and more appropriate approaches. His current research includes some of these developments and explores their potential for accounting research. The work of eminent social philosophical scholars including Baudrillard, Derrida, Foucault, Lyotard, and Wittgenstein, amongst others, has been the inspiration for this new perspective.
