Finally this book makes me understand clearly about research paradigms..This book also cites the book that I should read based on sv's recommendation(Burrel and Morgan's,1979; Sociological Paradigms and ............ )
So I can understand at least what is 'competing paradigms'
So far this terms Bryman and Emma (2003) explain in more easy words....
-OBJECTIVIST ~~~~ external viewpoint - to view the organization- comprised consistently with processes and structures
-SUBJECTIVIST ~~~~ organization as socially constructed product-point view from individual of their social experience
-REGULATORY ~~~~ tends to purpose of business research - organization description-suggest minor changes- not make judgement for the organization
-RADICAL ~~~~ to make judgments - to make suggestions that could be achieved
FROM THAT 4 POSSIBLE PARADIGMS POSITIONS.................
-FUNCTIONALIST; dominant framework ; study the organizations - problem solving
-INTERPRETATIVE; questions either organization exist as social actors
-RADICAL HUMANIST;social arrangement= organization
-RADICAL STRUCTURALIST; organizations = structural power relationships - conflicts
So far I'm still in explorations...if can, I also will be have some discussion with my fellow friends.....sometimes lonely study tends to misunderstand too......
