Case for Basic Social Math

  1. 1. Is Context-Independent Communication Possible? The Case for Basic Social Math © 2012 by Jared Lee Hanson Academy of Management Annual Meeting in Boston, Massachusetts, USA
  2. 2. Frankfurt School & the Question of Truth “Horkheimer argued that the social sciences are different from the natural sciences, “inasmuch as generalizations cannot be easily made from so-called experiences, “because the understanding of a ‘social’ experience itself is always fashioned by ideas that are in the researchers themselves.” (1976)*
  3. 3. Why Can’t We Generalize?
  4. 4. Philosophical Divide “Scientific inquiry places a lot “Pragmatism distinguishes of emphasis on method, on inquiry from research by saying exactly how the evidence in knowledge is community based support of a knowledge claim rather than universal.... was collected. ... if a rigorous pragmatism sees inquiry as method is used, then the reflecting on physical events evidence collected to support a through a variety of concepts proposed solution will be (lenses, theories, perspectives, thought to be ‘true’ regardless stances, viewpoints or of who collected it or whom it ideologies).” (Metcalfe, 2008) is presented to.” (Metcalfe, Includes: Qual/Quan Methods, 2008) Normative/Descriptive Modeling
  5. 5. Problem with Social Construction
  6. 6. Criticism from Austrian Economics “Mises argued that numerically accurate ‘probabilities’ could never be assigned to singular cases because the unique confluence of events in each moment of time in real markets makes the assignment of ‘objective’ probabilities unrealistic, as these events are intrinsically unique and not capable of numerical probabilistic modeling.”(1981)* “The Austrian praxeological method is based on the heavy use of logical deduction from what they argue to be undeniable, self- evident axioms or irrefutable facts about human existence.” (Hoppe, 2007)*
  7. 7. Problem in Current Methods How can we reach any irrefutable facts about human existence?
  8. 8. Habermas on Communicating Truth “In this version of the consensus theory of truth Habermas maintains that truth is what would be agreed upon in an ideal speech situation.” (1981)* “An ‘ideal speech situation’ (in Payrow Shabani, 2003)*, requires participants to have the same capacities of discourse, social equality and their words are not confused by ideology or other errors. (in Calhoun, 2002)*”
  9. 9. Lessons from Language Class
  10. 10. “Ideal Speech Situation”? “Decision making is a fundamental particle of management” (Noonan, 2007).
  11. 11. The Need for Linguistic Rigor How can we achieve legitimacy in our social representations? Illustrations of perspective in drawing (Gavin, 2010). Cimabue, 1280 Giotto, 1310 Da Vinci, 1503-6
  12. 12. Basic Social Math Bridging the Philosophical Divide Testing Paradigms Against Empirical Evidence Anchoring Meaning to Empirical Processes in order to Frame and Navigate Complex Problems “While theory must inform praxis, praxis must also have a chance to inform theory.” Frankfurt School*
