Content

This unit will provide students with a solid understanding of two major philosophical perspectives used in social theorising and methodological practice, and representative theoretical approaches used to interpret and explain human behaviour, actions, and organisations. Students will explore how these ideas are used to construct theory and organise methodological practice.

Representative topics include: positivism; phenomenology; functionalism; interactionism; and critical theories. In seminars, students work through problem formulation, theory construction, reviewing and mining a literature, and developing theoretical models.
