Collectively these ideas allowed to shed some light on the importance of social and cultural context surrounding and supporting organizations.

My doubt– should I say allowed shedding some light? – does the sentence flow well?

    Hi, Parengon:

    I totally agree with Clairanne, but am still wondering what you want to express with "allowed to shed some light on"?Could you please explain your sentence?

    With "allowed to" I would like to emphasise that before these theories, nobody considered the social and cultural context in organization theory.

    Was "allowed to" grammatically wrong?

    :) thanks

    As a non-english native speaker, I'm not sure if the above senteces sound ok, but they appear to me gramatically correct.
