Integrative Levels Classification project scheme how it works León Manifesto references

Classifying by phenomena, theories and methods:
Examples with focused social science theories

by Rick Szostak and Claudio Gnoli

Abstract

This paper shows how a variety of theories employed across a range of social sciences could be classified in terms of theory type. In each case, notation within the Integrated Level Classification is provided. The paper thus illustrates how one key element of the Leon Manifesto — that scholarly documents should be classified in terms of the theory(ies) applied can be achieved in practice.
