Consilience: An Integrative Approach for Holistic, Overarching and Deterministic Knowledge
AbstractThis research seeks for a major change of direction in the management research field. As proposed by Kuhn in 1970, the academia and research needs unification of knowledge. The article opens up a critical debate by challenging and questioning the status quo (normal science) (Kuhn, 1970). Employing interpretive and critical discourse analysis it presents three of the integrated praxis in academia i-e multidisciplinarity, interdiciplinarity and transdisciplinarity, highlighting the differences among the stated integrated approaches in academia it presents an overarching approach to integration that encases all the three integrated approaches of the academia – consilience, thus responding to Kuhn’s call and further suggesting how it will be aiding the field of management.
