Action Theory

Discipline: Sociology

Action theory is a theory of social investigation.

The social investigator cannot and should not be indifferent to what he/she studies. People are always both subjects and objects of research, and thus investigation should involve principled stands on the problems studied, and principled intentions of changing them.
