|Title:||Theory Games||Authors:||Scally, Kevin; Kavanagh, Donncha||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/5141||Date:||10-Jul-2013||Online since:||2013-12-09T12:11:26Z||Abstract:||This paper examines the remarkable and unexplored correspondence between games (and board games in particular) and what is commonly understood as theory in the social sciences. It argues that games exhibit many if not most of the attributes of theory, but that theory is missing some of the features of games. As such, game provide a way of rethinking what we mean by theory and theorizing. Specifically, games and their relationship with the ¿real¿ world, provide a way of thinking about theory and theorizing that is consistent with recent calls to frame social inquiry around the concept of phrónēsis.||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Keywords:||Theory; Games||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Conference Details:||8th International Conference in Critical Management Studies, Manchester, 10th - 12th July, 2013|
