    How to Phrase Critical Realist Interview Questions in Applied Social Science Research.Andreas Brönnimann - 2022 - Alethia 21 (1):1-24.
    ABSTRACT The tenets of critical and social realism are well supported in the literature. However, researchers following a realist paradigm have concerns about the lack of methodical guidance for qualitative interviewing, despite their affirmation about the importance of in-depth interviews. A conducted review of empirical realist literature provides evidence of an absence of guidance and commonality regarding interview planning practices. To overcome this absence, this paper composes a guiding framework to assist researchers to phrase more appropriate interview questions in realist (...)

    Problematizing People Management Practices: A Critical Realist Study of Knowledge Sharing.Konstantinos Kakavelakis & Tim Edwards - 2022 - Alethia 21 (1):46-64.
    ABSTRACT Within the field of Human Resource Management, it is assumed that people management practices, including teamworking and cultural initiatives, enable knowledge sharing because they encourage employees to work collaboratively. Perhaps less well understood are occasions when such efforts fail to deliver knowledge sharing arrangements. Here we employ the critical realist concept of emergence to situate the introduction of people management practices in support of knowledge sharing, to examine how such efforts create the emergent properties to either share or not (...)

    The Strategic-Relational Approach, Realism and the State: From Regulation Theory to Neoliberalism Via Marx and Poulantzas, an Interview with Bob Jessop.Jamie Morgan & Bob Jessop - 2022 - Alethia 21 (1):83-118.
    ABSTRACT In this wide-ranging interview, Bob Jessop discusses the development of, and many of the main themes in, his work over the last fifty years. He explains how he became interested in realism and Marxism; and he describes the various influences on his highly influential theory of the state. The discussion explores his strategic-relational approach, his thoughts on regulation theory, variegated capitalism, post-disciplinarity, cultural political economy and his ‘spatial-turn’, as well as neoliberalism, contemporary events and looming problems of climate change (...)

    The Loneliness of a Long-Distance Critical Realist Student: The Story of a Doctoral Writing Group.Karen Sheppard, Angela Davenport & Catherine Hastings - 2022 - Alethia 21 (1):65-82.
    ABSTRACT As doctoral students from New Zealand and Australia, advised by supervision teams with a diversity of critical realist experience from limited to none, we came independently to the 2018 Critical Realism conference – primed to seek increased understanding, confidence, motivation, and reassurance. We certainly found these things from the pre-conference, presentations, and individuals within the critical realist community. We also found each other, and a virtual writing group was born. This article is a description of what we did, why, (...)

    Doing ‘Judgemental Rationality’ in Empirical Research: The Importance of Depth-Reflexivity When Researching in Prison.Matthew L. N. Wilkinson, Mallory Schneuwly Purdie, Lamia Irfan & Muzammil Quraishi - 2022 - Alethia 21 (1):25-45.
    ABSTRACT Critical realist thought has theorised convincingly that epistemic relativism is constellationally embedded in ontological realism which in turn necessitates judgemental rationality. In social science, judgemental rationality involves acting upon plausible decisions about competing points of view. However, the tools for doing this are, as yet, under-articulated. This paper addresses this absence by articulating triangulation and depth-reflexivity as two tools for doing judgemental rationality in empirical research. It draws on the experiences of a diverse team working on an international comparative (...)
