Résumé

We argue that three epistemic scripts of knowledge production--evolution, differentiation, and bricolage--underpin the production--that is, the conception and the presentation--of new organizational theories. Bricolage of concepts, empirical material, and metaphors enables the conception of new theories, whereas evolution and differentiation, carrying higher academic legitimacy, predominate in theory presentation. We develop an integrative model and provide an illustration from organizational institutionalism to delineate how metaphors and scripts influence organizational theory production.
