PHL 717 WEEK 8 Final Paper

Select a field of professional endeavor in the social sciences with which you are familiar. You may select a field in which you work, have worked, or plan to work—for example, marketing, finance, operations, information systems, or human resources. Your may draw examples of professional practice in the field from the private or public sector.

Write a 2,100- to 2,450-word paper that evaluates the current state of knowledge in the field you selected. Your paper must:

  • Describe the field you selected and the scope and basis of your familiarity with it.
  • Identify the different kinds of knowledge practitioners and researchers in the field to draw on to inform business or leadership decisions.
  • Identify the philosophical assumptions underlying research and practice in the field, including operative paradigms, normal scientific and management practice, and other characteristics that seem relevant and telling in terms of their effects on the profession.
  • Evaluate whether such assumptions are justified, desirable, and consciously held by practitioners and researchers in the field. Your evaluation must consider your view of the profession and how at least one approach—positivist, conventionalist, poststructuralist, postmodernist, hermeneutic, critical, or critical realists—might challenge or augment those assumptions and their practical consequences.

Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.
