The Intellectual and Social Organization of the Sciences
Clarendon Press, 1984 - Science - 319 pages
Increasing attention is paid in the social sciences and management studies to the constitution and claims of different theories, perspectives, and "paradigms." This book is one of the most respected and robust analyses of these issues. For this new paperback edition Richard Whitley--a leadingfigure in European business education--has written a new introduction which addresses the particular epistemological issues of business management studies.
