Scholars increasingly depict hybridity as pervasive across organizations. We offer insight about how paradox theory informs and expands this approach to hybridity. To do so, we do a deeper dive into paradox theory, comparing and contrasting a dynamic equilibrium approach with a permanent dialectics approach. Integrating these two approaches offers paradox theory insights that can enrich and expand hybridity scholarship. We offer suggestions for how paradox theory can help develop a future research agenda for organizational hybridity.
