In this seminar I will dissect different forms of theory (and thinking) in terms of how they conceive the object of study; as things outside of time, as processes in time, or as ways of being.

I aim to bring some clarity to the questions:

  • What is theory?
  • What are the entities and relations that we represent with boxes and arrow?
  • What are the objectives of the various kinds of theory?
  • How do time, change, causality and human agency appear in each kind of theory?

I would also like to promote mutual understanding of the various orientations in business research.

All are welcome!
