INTRODUCTION:

According to your text, epistemology is a ‘general set of assumptions about the best ways of inquiring into the nature of the world’ (Easterby-Smith, et al., 2012, p.17). Epistemology addresses questions such as:

· What is knowledge?

· How is knowledge acquired?

· How do we know what we know?

· Is it possible to have knowledge at all?

In research, an epistemological stance will influence how you choose a research topic as well as the methodology and methods you use. Review the resources this week to explore the role of epistemology in research.

QUESTION:

Considering the questions addressed by “Epistemology” stated in the previous introduction, in what ways does the choice of an epistemological perspective or stance influence the formulation of a management research problem?
