Candidate Naail Mohammed KAMIL12 Abstract In conducting management research, the researchers stance of ontology and epistemology in the contribution of knowledge is paramount. The acknowledgement of such stance is imperative as it may have inherent effects from how a research is conducted to how findings are reported and evaluated.
This exploratory study attempts to provide a brief discussion of the philosophical standpoints paradigms characterized in management research. The discussion covered the two extremes; from the early modernism positivism school of thought to the other extreme of social constructionism. Other schools of varying standpoints of ontology and epistemology occur between these extremes.
For individual schools of thought paradigmsthe ontological status of social reality, the ontological status of human behavior and the epistemological status, has been discussed.
As mentioned by Rogerp. The modern era is held to be contemporaneous with the rise of natural science, and the decline of the centralizing tendency in Christendom. Hence Descartes is described as a modern philosopher, while Aquinas is not. A modernist is committed to the modern age, believing that traditions must be overthrown or redefined in order to do justice to the new forms of experience.
The core belief in the natural sciences is as Phil et al. Natural science methodology seeks to give deterministic explanations of events erklaren through the use of hypothetico-deductive methods Popper, to give a generalized nomothetic knowledge.
Here, at the start of research, there is always a priori theory. Then hypotheses will be generated and subjected to deduction and testing through quantification.
The evaluation criteria for assessing this paradigm is via the use of internal validity, external validity, construct validity and reliability. On the other extreme is the movement called postmodernism.
This movement consists of diverse kinds of schools of thought that were constituted after the modernism movement. Postmodernism is originally a reaction to the modernism movement. Unlike modernism which comprises of the positivists school of thought, postmodernism is lacking a clear central hierarchy or organizing principle and embodying extreme complexity, contradiction, ambiguity, diversity and interconnectedness.
Therefore, apart from the positivism school of thought which follows the modernism concept as in the natural sciences, all other schools of thought are to some extent, characterized under the postmodernism movement, which consist of an array of schools of thought and their diversities in terms of their ontological realists or subjectivists and epistemological objectivists or subjectivists views.
Social constructionism also has its bases from phenomenology, which as mentioned by Rogerp. Appearances may be deceptive; they may also be revealing, without being identical with the nonmental reality that is known through them.
Consider the face in the picture: this is an appearance, which is genuinely and objectively there to the conscious observer. But is it part of physical reality? To understand the world as it appears is certainly part of the task of philosophy: the most important things in life goodness, beauty, love and meaning are grounded in appearance.
For phenomenologists, however, appearances are the primary subject-matter of philosophy. And since appearances are dependent on the subject who observes them, phenomenology involves a study of consciousness itself.
So argued Edmund Husserl, the Moravian founder of the discipline, who wrote during the early decades of this century. Social constructionism uses the concept of verstehen in an attempt to view the world in the perspective of the subject.The Quagmire of Philosophical Standpoints (Paradigms) in Management Research.
