Pluralism, Scientific Progress and the Structure of Organization Studies.
Abstract: Should organization studies aspire to be a
mono-paradigmatic science as argued by Pfeffer or should we pursue a
strategy of unconditional pluralism by “letting thousands flower grow”? A
new framework is presented that suggests that scientific progress in
organization studies will best be promoted by upholding a balance between
the exploitation of existing research programs and the exploration of new
research programs. Too much pluralism can be as destructive for scientific
progress as too little pluralism.
