Paradigms for Organizational Communication Research: An Overview and Synthesis.
Putnam, Linda L.
Western Journal of Speech Communication, v46 n2 p192-206 Spr 1982
Describes four paradigms that dominate the major research traditions in organizational communication: functionalist, interpretive, radical humanist, and radical structuralist. Argues that, although researchers rarely make their core assumptions known, their beliefs about social reality undergird the way they theorize and put into operation organizational communication.
