Critical Realism: he who pays the piper calls the tune

Bednar, Peter LU and Green, Gillian (2004) ECRM2004: 3rd European Conference on Research Methods in Business and Management In [Host publication title missing] p.51-58
Abstract
The history of information systems research is steeped in a quest for appropriate methodologies, rigueur within complexity and an evolution of approaches. Currently this evolutionary trend may be seen to culminate in a siding of IS research within critical frameworks. In this paper we will draw on a relationship between IS research and system analysis to use similarities and differences in an attempt to aid understanding in how such a parallel may influence the development of IS analysis. Could efforts to create connections across different critical approaches initially be described as a kind of critical realism?
