Poulis, Konstantinos ORCID logoORCID: https://orcid.org/0000-0002-3355-9543 and Kastanakis, Minas (2020) On theorizing and methodological fetishism. European Management Journal, 38 (5) . pp. 676-683. ISSN 0263-2373 [Article] (doi:10.1016/J.EMJ.2020.06.006)


We posit that our scholarship is developed on the basis of ontological, epistemological and methodological dogmas which impede further progress. In particular, we problematize the theorizing and methodological fetishism that exist across both quantitative and qualitative traditions and we propose some ways to overcome them. In this way we join relevant discussions which question the value, relevance and legitimacy of our research endeavors - while being confident that a more thoughtful, collective reflection will propel management scholarship to become stronger and more nuanced.
