عنوان مقاله [English]
According to a classical view in public administration, public administrators are expected to perceive themselves as the ones who have been called to serve the public. On such a basis and through a metaphorical view, if pubic administration is perceived as a “calling”, members of public organizations are to consider themselves subject to such a calling. Due to the high degree of abstraction of the construct “calling”, as long as it is not subjected to theoretical morphology, the addressees and targets of such calling would have no coherent understanding of its form and content; Moreover, its behavioral outcomes and functions might be dubious and controversial for them. In this regard, this study is a theoretical attempt to review the behavioral aspects of calling in organization; In addition, it attempts to offer a morphological description of calling, through exploring its definitions, limitations, specifications and species.
