ABSTRACT
The article comments on several studies which focused on behavioral research in industrial relations. The author suggested that the issue raised by the use of different models of humans in industrial research was not the one that Professor Bruce Kaufman identified. Secondly, was that the labeling used to describe the approaches taken by different industrial relations scholars is important to understand those approaches. The author believed that the economic and psychological approaches to industrial relations research can benefit each other. It is argued however that integration of the two approaches is likely to be either a practical or a useful strategy to follow.
