Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to explore the connections between autopoiesis, as described by Maturana and Varela, and Bakhtin's work on dialogue in understanding successful organizational rhetoric.
Design/methodology/approach – This paper reviews two foundational texts in order to see the connection between them.
Findings – The concept of “organizational closure” will govern the domain of communication and therefore also any act in rhetoric.
Originality/value – This is a first attempt to link “organizational closure” as it exists in autopoiesis to Bakhtin's notion of a superaddressee.
