This book presents a critique of dominant governance theories grounded in an understanding of existence as a static, discrete, mechanistic process, while also identifying the failures of theories that assume dynamic alternatives of either a radically collectivist or individualist nature. It demonstrates that each governance approach has unacceptable fatal flaws within a diverse global context. Relationships between ontology and governance practices are established, drawing upon a wide range of social, political, and administrative theory. The authors then go on to develop a typology of four dominant approaches to governance, providing a systematic analysis of each. The book explains how the theories of governance are crafted using the ideal-type method and employs dialectical analysis to establish meanings and to thoroughly unpack and critique each governance ideal-type. The book then goes on to develop an alternative governance approach, one that is neither individualist nor collectivist, while still maintaining the dynamic character required for cultural processes that accommodate integrative change.
