Illustrates a core concept: multiple inclusion or the process of multiple including. Offers a perspective of configuring human beings who organize simultaneously "worlds of difference", or "realities" and the perspective from the point of view of an actor, in relation to others. Each appearance of an actor's participation or "inclusion" thus becomes related to a specific context. Claims this social space always has a multiple character. To an actor, it is an area of tension which contains various dimensions. It is crucial that another inclusion or a new definition of a situation can be introduced, as an indication of the variety of contexts. An actor may evoke or find an inclusion at the social- or cognitive-structural levels. Both can be called on at once. But the moment variety is no longer allowed, problems of power can emerge. Utilizes a previous study of the Utrecht Jazz Orchestra for consequences of this stand for diagnosis in an organizational context.
