Case Studies and Non-Abstractionist Theorizing
Keywords:case study, theory, practice, application, abstractionism
Case studies offer a unique methodological resource for studying human practices in real-world settings and have the potential to facilitate non-abstractionist theorizing that may be especially useful to practitioners. Stiles’ contribution regarding deduction, induction, and abduction in theory development—via case study methods—raises important, but often ignored, issues and suggests several ways that cases can facilitate this practically-oriented theoretical work.
