      Grounded theory is a type of qualitative research methodology that allows theory/theories to emerge from the data that is collected. Grounded theory research follows a systematic yet flexible process to collect data, code the data, make connections and see what theory/theories are generated or are built from the data. Integral theory is Ken Wilber's attempt to place a wide diversity of theories and thinkers into one single framework. It is portrayed as a "theory of everything" ("the living Totality of matter, body, mind, soul, and spirit"), trying "to draw together an already existing number of separate paradigms into an interrelated network of approaches that are mutually enriching.".

      We provide an overview of the most important research on literary “self”-labels since the s, from discourse-criticism and deconstruction to narratology and systems theory, and we outline a conceptual and terminological framework for contemporary analyses. A worldview, conceptual fr amework, or model is a critical component of one's vision of the possibilities for human learning and development as it defines the important variables to consider and the relationships among those variables. There are a number of different philosophical positions that provide a foundation for organization and interpretation of empirical data into models.

      The unifying framework, that is, the brain-mind-computer trichotomy is suggested analyzed by using hermeneutic approach. While we argue that brain is a hermeneutic device, and hermeneutics is also necessary to understand situations and other's minds. Intentional dynamics is a possible approach to set a unifying framework.   In their seminal book ‘The New Institutionalism in Organizational Analysis’, DiMaggio and Powell highlighted the need for a coherent theory of action, the lack of which was institutional theory’s main weakness when it is set out to explain change and the role of actors in the creation of institutions and social practices.
