Example text

Qualitative research To proponents of qualitative social research, the positivist attempt to bring the human world under scientific control through the measurement of quantities misses out the essential ‘qualities’ of human experience. And in the light of the criticisms of positivist research outlined above, qualitative researchers propose a very different model of inquiry. There are several different traditions of qualitative research and the following description is only intended to sum up the general perspective which they all share.

This involves, above all, questioning our spontaneous interpretations of events, and then sharing and comparing our interpretations and questions, in order to create the maximum opportunity for challenge, surprise and mutual learning. Any eventual framework of categories for ‘coding’ data will gradually emerge as a negotiated outcome of the inquiry (see ‘Datagathering’ above). More importantly, the form of analysis we choose needs to be appropriate for ‘feeding back’ into the developmental process, as an agenda for the discussion of possible action.

Action research, inquiry and development 17 4 By focusing on only one or two variables in a situation, the positivist model of research assumes that the complex interlocking systems of social reality can be understood as a series of abstracted fragments. But this fragmented conception of human reality is highly artificial, and the results of any research which depends on such a conception are unconvincing. If the methodological problems of quantitative research, as outlined above, are borne in mind, then its outcomes will be properly recognised as being no more than modest conjectures, open to refutation (see above references to Popper).
