Critical Realist Applications in Organisation and Management Studies
Steve Fleetwood, Stephen Ackroyd
Psychology Press, 2004 - Business & Economics - 366 pages
Critical realism has become increasingly important in the way organization and management is studied. This innovative book argues for an alternative to the prevailing ontology, and shows how positivism and its empirical realist ontology can be abandoned without having to accept strong social constructionism.
Ideal for postgraduates and professionals, this key book will be a valuable resource across a wide range of subjects.
