No 838: A true competitive advantage? Reflections on different epistemological approaches to strategy research

Rodolphe Durand () and Eero Vaara

Abstract: In this paper, the authors focus on the theory of truth underlying specific traditions in strategy research. They distinguish positivism, constructionism, scientific realism, and pragmatism as viable, but fundamentally different epistemological approaches. The authors argue that each of these approaches is based on a specific theory of truth.
