    What is the nature of the produced knowledge? What is the value and status of this knowledge? In answering these questions, inspiration may be drawn from the three major epistemological paradigms usually identified with organizational science: the positivist, the interpretativist, and the constructivist paradigms. In metatheory, his contributions include"Metatheorizing in Sociology"(Lexington Books, ), "Sociology: A Multiple Paradigm Science" (Allyn and Bacon, , ), and "Toward an Integrated Sociological Paradigm"Professor Ritzer is perhaps best known for the"McDonaldization of Society" (4/e, ); translated into more than a dozen languages.

A group of renowned sociological theorists analyze why the attempts to make sociological theory formal in the s and early s failed. This becomes not only an unusual and interesting analysis in the sociology of knowledge, but several of the articles move to the level of analyzing the entire discipline, explaining why positivism did not take hold and what are the distinctive.

    Drawing on three categories of conditions (metaphysical, sociological and artefacts), we analyze the extent to which S-D logic meets the conditions of a paradigm. Our findings indicate that while S-D logic aligns with most of the metaphysical and sociological conditions for a paradigm, further development is needed for S-D logic to meet the Cited by: 2. 1.

ABSTRACT: This paper discusses the epistemological status and potential scope of the discipline of sociology based on the writings of Ludwig von Mises. More specifically, it presents his epistemological distinction between theory and history, and argues that sociology can be integrated in this framework as a historical discipline.

In other words, the issues concerning epistemology in sociology pertain to the status and range of sociological knowledge. Introductory Texts There are a number of books that deal with philosophical themes in the social sciences, including the issue of whether or not sociological knowledge can be akin to knowledge produced in the natural sciences.

Ritzer's main theoretical interests lie in metatheory as well as applied social theory. In metatheory, his contributions include Metatheorizing in Sociology(Lexington Books, ), Sociology: A Multiple Paradigm Science (Allyn and Bacon,), and Toward an Integrated Sociological Paradigm (Allyn and Bacon)/5(18).

The Role of Epistemological Paradigms in Research in Social Sciences and Humanities is the broadest unit of consensus within a science and serves to differentiate one scientific community (or sub-community) from another.

This paper examines recent developments in meta-study in sociology which involves metatheory, metamethod, and meta-data-analysis. It argues that the three branches of Author: Shanyang Zhao.

itis no exaggeration, therefore, tosuggest that the social-scientificenter­ prise in general is built upon an extremely narrow set of metatheoretical assumptions.

Epistemology is also ‘concerned with providing a philosophical grounding for deciding what kinds of knowledge are possible and how we can ensure that they are both adequate and legitimate.’ (Maynard, ) in Crotty, Ibid, 8).

().The second term ‘epistemology’ represents the “theory of knowledge” and its epistemological assumption is focused on the study of the nature of the world and how we know what we know (Marsh& Furlong, p.

), so it is directed at “knowledge-gathering process” (Grix, p. 63).
