Abstract

Based on readings of Horkheimer and Adorno, authors of the so-called first generation of Frankfurt School, the text socializes understandings regarding critical ontology, epistemology and methodology aiming to contribute with the practice of critical research within the Frankfurtian tradition in the management field. The paper sets off with ontological discussion to substantiate the Frankfurtian epistemological perspective. It then introduces critical epistemological dimensions and suggests three dialectic categorical pairs for understanding reality: naturalization versus history, system versus social praxis, alienation/domination versus emancipation. The text discusses methodological issues and concludes socializing an example of critical research within the Frankfurtian tradition in management.
