This article represents a synthesis and rejoinder to the response articles by Ashkanasy, Cropanzano and Becker, and McLagan (this issue). First, I remind the readers of the key points I raised in the originating article (this issue), followed by clarifications on where respondents misunderstood my intentions and arguments. Third, I will synthesize the respondents’ main arguments by way of highlighting both converging and diverging perspectives on my critique. Finally, I conclude the article with some thoughts and suggestions for the future development of the debate.
