Willcocks, Leslie P. and Mingers, John (2004) Social theory and philosophy for information systems. Wiley series in information systems . John Wiley & Sons Ltd, Chichester, UK. ISBN 9780470851173
As Information Systems matures as a discipline, there is a gradual move away from pure statistics towards consideration of alternative approaches and philosophies. This has not been incorporated into the literature of the field. Until now. Collecting major social theorists and philosophers into one volume, Social Theory and Philosophy for Information Systems provides a historical and critical analysis of each that is both authoritative and firmly focused on practical relevance to IS. The result is an insightful text for researchers, academics and students that will provide an up-to-date starting point for those considering alternative approaches.
