Abstract

Microsoft Word - WP_2005_2_omslag.dot WORKING PAPER 2005-2 Erik Maaløe ’Coming to Terms’ & ’Truth’ Department of Management and International Business Erik Maaløe: ‘COMING TO TERMS - on language, induction, deduction and our uncertain grasp of realities’ and ‘TRUTH - a concept of imagination with many faces’ ii iii Preface This text is an outline for the opening chapters of an upcoming book on explanatory, interpretative and understanding approaches to social studies in general and case studies in particular. Both chapters, ”Coming to Terms - on language, induction, deduction and our uncertain grasp of realities,” and “Truth – a concept of imagination with many faces,” are revised versions of two previous working papers, now combined into one. The third chapter, “In case of case research – different approaches within social research, generalization, self-awareness and nearness to field of study”, is also available in a revised version as Working Paper 2004-9/rev.ed. and will be forwarded by request (contact the author). The remaining chapters will deal with the practical challenges of empirically-based social research in general and of case studies in particular, whether they be conducted in an explanatory, interpretative or understanding mode! Please excuse the empty footnotes: they are part of my own account for internal references for the project as a whole. Comments and observations regarding the present text are most welcome. They will be appreciated – be they nasty and/or conducive to greater clarification.
