These four research paradigms come from Burrell & Morgan (1979) to explain the way they saw the social-scientific world. This video gives an overview, explains the two main axes in their model, and explains each of the four paradigms: Functionalist, interpretive, radical humanist, and radical structuralist.
We can use this model to more clearly understand the research and theory we are reading and locate our own work. Both authors have backgrounds in organizational studies and their framework makes the most sense from this point of view.
