Constructing mystery: Empirical matters in theory development

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift

Abstract

We outline a research methodology developed around two basic elements: the active discovery and/or creation of mysteries and the subsequent solving of the mysteries. A key element is the reflexive opening up of established theory and vocabulary through a systematic search for deviations from what would be expected. given established wisdom, in empirical contexts. "Data" are seen as an inspiration for critical dialogues between theoretical frameworks and empirical work.
