Foucault's concepts of freedom and resistance are examined to determine how they may feed into theorizing the Kantian 'question of the present' for postmodern organizational analysis. This paper takes a measure of how reflexivity and creative selfrepresentation materialize change in the ways critique is advanced in organization studies.
