SSE/EFI Working Paper Series in Business Administration No 2003:15

By Peter Norberg


Technology has contributed to what Max Weber termed the disenchantment of the world. Employees risk being deprived of their experience of meaning in work. Presently, we observe magic, morality and narrative being allowed to enter business. Re-enchantment is a broad, but ignored tendency characterising the present exit from industrial society and stretching into financial markets. This piece of research takes a micro-sociological interest in the mentality and culture of financial markets. It also has a macro-sociological character in dealing with the rationalization of society. Three major aspects of a desired re-enchantment are studied; community, myth and morality

Topics: re-enchantment, financial markets, meaning
