This collection of essays arose from a call for papers issued by Organization Studies in 2004 to celebrate and critically engage the scholarship of Karl Weick; to carry forward his thinking into new contexts and take stock of recent developments in the themes, issues and theories that have preoccupied Weick in his more than 40 years of scholarship. The first seven papers included here accomplish these objectives. In the final essay, in response to our request, Weick himself reflects on continuing themes in his work and major influences on his scholarship.
