There is increasing interest in modularity in the midst of our ongoing electronic revolution. To understand the implications of modularity across technological, organizational, and institutional contexts, the editors have brought together in one place seminal articles on architectures, networks, and organizations.These articles address modularity from a variety of disciplinary perspectives and from multiple levels of analyses. The applicability of original insights to contemporary business environments as well as updates are summarized in fresh commentaries by each author. The volume itself is designed to be modular. At the same time, it has been designed to highlight key interdependencies across the concepts of modularity, networks, architectures, and organizations. Readers are encouraged to make connections among different domains and to formulate new research questions and hypotheses. The book includes a commentary co-authored by the late Nobel Laureate Herbert A. Simon, to whom the book is dedicated.
