Epistemology of Management

by Lukasz Sulkowski (Author)
©2013 Monographs 179 Pages

Summary

The epistemological and methodological issues within management sciences constitute a difficult area for theoretical reflection. The main goal of this book is to deepen epistemological and methodological reflection concerned with the foundations of organization and management in order to broaden the methodological awareness of researchers from the field of management sciences. This book does not describe paradigm change; it points out possible evolutional directions for management reflection. The key matter is to convince of the uncertainty and of the contextual nature of the knowledge obtained through management.
