Management Research

epistemology is a general set of assumptions about the best ways of inquiring into the nature of the world (Easterby-Smith, et al., 2012, p.17) Epistemology addresses questions such as:
What is knowledge?
How is knowledge acquired?
How do we know what we know?
Is it possible to have knowledge at all?
Please answer the question: \”In what ways does the choice of an epistemological perspective or stance influence the formulation of a management research problem?\”
Please note that the answer should have more clarification of the method but in an intelligent critique of the theory.
