Abstract

This monograph proposes a theoretical and methodological critique of the concept of flexibility. This critique is based on evaluation criteria of the concepts offered by the social sciences research methodology. Through this exercise, the concept of flexibility appears to be derived from the explanatory functionalist framework of variability and change, which is not able to interpret the firm and work transformations as the current literature is emphasizing.
