"Reasoning in Organization Science"

Speaker: Mikko Ketokivi & Saku Mantere
University of Technology - Helsinki

10 May 2006 - From 17h00 to 18h00

Our everyday reasoning and logics-in-use as practicing scientists differs radically from the
logical reconstructions or idealizations of the corresponding research designs. There is, for
instance, little formal deduction involved in the actual applications of hypothetico-deductive
research approaches, and the “inductive case study approach” relies in fact heavily on reasoning
other than induction. The goal of this paper is to examine how these logics-in-use differ from the
reconstructed logics. We demonstrate that researchers in different paradigms and research
designs all make use of the same three elementary forms of reasoning: deduction, induction, and abduction. We also demonstrate that researcher subjectivity is always present in the reasoning
process.
