THE DEMARCATION PROBLEM IN MANAGEMENT SCIENCE. A FORMAL REPRESENTATIVE PARADIGM IN MANAGEMENT SCIENCE
Languages of publication
One of important theoretical aspects of management science is epistemic arrangement. The paper presents a consistent concept of a partial ordering of different aspects of the management science based on the principles of demarcation of philosophy of science introduced by Kuhn, Lakatos and Laudan. The proposed 'representative paradigm' allows to exclude all problems transferrable onto formal computer languages. For such a specific range of problems the author demonstrated the applicability of the scientific method principles and the 'good paradigm' concept. Introduced division of problems meet the criterion of Laudan's rationality of demarcation in science. The logical layout for the 'selective demarcation' of management science is the perfect tool, leading to the construction of a better described and consistent structures of the epistemic arrangement.
