Based on a post-modernist perspective, this paper problematizes the Brazilian academic production on organizational culture. Firstly, we present some important aspects of the post-modernist perspective in social theory, focusing on its contribution to the study of organizational culture. Then, we briefly present some central ideas developed in papers on Brazilian organizational culture published in Brazilian journals and conferences´ proceedings during the years 1991 to 2000. Based on this theoretical and empirical reference, we finally conclude that most of the studies and researches on Brazilian organizational culture, in the context of Administrative academic field, do not appropriately consider the plurality and heterogeneity of our country and our organizations.
