    Abstract

    This chapter explores the potential synergies between labour process theory (LPT) and critical realism (CR). Its purpose is not to suggest that using CR is a substitute for theorising within the LPT tradition. Rather it is to set out the view that CR conceptions of a layered ontology may help to address and resolve some long standing issues about the scope and character of LPT, particularly those associated with the idea of a ‘core’ theory, as discussed below and in several chapters within this volume (see also Edwards 2005).
