The Foundations of Social Research

Michael Crotty


Publisher: Allen & Unwin

Format: Paperback

Increasingly, Masters and PhD students are required, in their research proposal and in writing their thesis, to defend their choice of method. Students are required to be clear about the appropriate method to use when addressing a particular question, and to be consistent and true in methodology to the theoretical perspective that informs the research. This text offers a detailed outline of the major theoretical perspectives that colour and shape current social research; positivism, constructionism, interpretivism, critical inquiry, feminism and postmodernism. The author reveals the philosophical origins of these schools of enquiry and links the contributions of various disciplines to the practice of social research today.
