European Research Paradigms in Business Studies: Papers from the First EDAMBA Summer School (Edamba Book Series)
Research is becoming an important part of business schools' activities. As a scientific field that is both relevant and cross-disciplinary, business studies is at the center of many important issues in the philosophy of science. Management and business economics are often seen as a fragmented research area without any unifying paradigm. That may be the case, but diversity is perhaps not necessarily bad - there may be dimensions other than paradigms that serve to unify the areas. This collection of papers arises out of the activity of the European Doctoral Programmes Association in Management and Business Administration and reflects the situation in the field as seen mainly through the eyes of advanced doctoral students. Issues concerning rationality and postmodernity, paradigms and social construction, theory building and application of knowledge to practical problems are treated. The philosophical problems are seen in relation to actual research projects concerning such diverse topics as privatization, fish farming and technological change. Hans Siggaard Jensen is Director of the Doctoral Programme at the Copenhagen Business School. Tom Elfring is Professor at the Department of Strategic Management & Business Environment, Rotterdam School of Management. Arthur Money is Professor of Management Studies at the Henley Management College.
