Abstract:
In this thesis, I set out to make a contribution to the business entrepreneurship literature by questioning the capacity of the mainstream 'entitativist' mode of thinking (Hosking, 1995) to theorise the variety and creativity of 'entrepreneurial opportunity identification' (EOI) actions. From, a non-mainstream 'relational' perspective (Hosking, 1995), I argue that the environmental determinism implicit in entitativist assumptions has had a simplifying. homogenising and reifying effect on the understanding of context-specific EOI phenomena.
