Sociological theory: Recommends more creative conversation between reality and theory
A new scientific paper co-authored by Maria Gussgard Volckmar-Eeg examine sociologists' views on the relations between theory and empirical data. More specifically, the article discuss the research tradition "institutional ethnography" and how it can be used as part of the sociological tool-box. The authors argue for an abductive approach, meaning that the relationship between theory and empirical data would gain from being more characterized by creative dialogue than more analytically closed sizes.
