The challenge of an enabling accounting is to move beyond providing insightful and incisive critiques of accounting to attempting to make accounting work as a positive force in the pursuit of democratic, in the sense of universally inclusive modes, social progress. Enabling accounting gains energy and direction from the criticism that critical accounting research and scholarship provides and seeks to move beyond critique to contemplating viable and emancipatory ways to move forward, to progress. Within the critical accounting literature, differences exist between researchers and their philosophical allegiances.
