Developing a general scientific methodology on tenets from Mario Bunges philosophy

Developing a general scientific methodology on tenets from Mario Bunges philosophy Purpose– The purpose of this paper is to present a general scientific methodology on tenets from Mario Bunge’s philosophy. Design/methodology/approach– Systemic thinking and conceptual generalisation. Findings– A general scientific methodology based on tenets from Mario Bunge’s philosophy of social science. Research limitations/implications– Using quantitative methods to conduct a research to test Asplunds motivation theory and North’s action theory. Practical implications– How to conduct a research based on a systemic perspective. Social implications– An advantage of linking a systemic perspective to organisational psychology studies is that it may result in new ways of looking at old problems and bring new perspectives to the methods used. One explanation may be the fact that while researchers within various organisational psychology subject fields are largely specialists, the systemic perspective is oriented towards general scientific methodology. Originality/value– The authors have not seen anybody who have tried to apply systemic thinking as a general methodology for research. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Kybernetes Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Purpose– The purpose of this paper is to present a general scientific methodology on tenets from Mario Bunge’s philosophy. Design/methodology/approach– Systemic thinking and conceptual generalisation. Findings– A general scientific methodology based on tenets from Mario Bunge’s philosophy of social science. Research limitations/implications– Using quantitative methods to conduct a research to test Asplunds motivation theory and North’s action theory. Practical implications– How to conduct a research based on a systemic perspective. Social implications– An advantage of linking a systemic perspective to organisational psychology studies is that it may result in new ways of looking at old problems and bring new perspectives to the methods used. One explanation may be the fact that while researchers within various organisational psychology subject fields are largely specialists, the systemic perspective is oriented towards general scientific methodology. Originality/value– The authors have not seen anybody who have tried to apply systemic thinking as a general methodology for research.
