This clearly written and provocative text outlines the wide range of epistemological and metaphysical pillars of research. In a clear, easy to follow style, the reader is guided through an array of concepts that are defined, explained and made simple. With the aid of helpful examples and case studies, the book challenges the prevailing modes of thinking about qualitative inquiry by showcasing an immense variety of philosophical frameworks. Armed with a strong understanding of this philosophical backbone, students will be able to choose and defend a ‘pick and mix’ of research methods that will uniquely complement their research. Empiricism Rationalism Realism Skepticism Idealism Positivism Post-positivism Idea-ism Hermeneutics Phenomenology Social Ontology Quantum Mechanics Essential reading for new and experienced researchers, this ‘must’ for any social science bookshelf will help unlock a new level of research creativity.

In Philosophies of Qualitative Research, Svend Brinkmann explores the different philosophical paradigms and ideas that influence qualitative research today. Adopting a historical perspective, the book shows readers exactly how philosophical ideas have evolved and influenced qualitative research in both the past and present. Today, qualitative researchers tend to report on their philosophical commitments in an altogether separate section of their research papers. However, as Philosophies of Qualitative Research asserts, the researcher's philosophical ideas influence everything from the conception of the topic to the final reporting of its results. Therefore, philosophy should not be thought of as a purely abstract discipline, disconnected from the practicalities of research, but rather as a concrete and pervasive aspect of all qualitative research practices. In this book, Brinkmann offers readers an important introduction and discussion of the philosophical issues that are relevant today, regardless of the specific methods employed by qualitative researchers in the field.

This handbook is a much-needed and in-depth review of the distinctive set of ethical considerations which accompanies qualitative research. This is particularly crucial given the emergent, dynamic and interactional nature of most qualitative research, which too often allows little time for reflection on the important ethical responsibilities and obligations Contributions from leading international researchers have been carefully organised into six key thematic sections: Part One: Thick Descriptions Of Qualitative Research Ethics Part Two: Qualitative Research Ethics By Technique Part Three: Ethics As Politics Part Four: Qualitative Research Ethics With Vulnerable Groups Part Five: Relational Research Ethics Part Six: Researching Digitally This Handbook is a one-stop resource on qualitative research ethics across the social sciences that draws on the lessons learned and the successful methods for surmounting problems – the tried and true, and the new.

إن ماركس وإنجلز ينشدان في الأيديولوجية الألمانية دراسة الإنسان الفعلي، الإنسان الحي، الإنسان في التاريخ. وإنهما ليؤكدان بلا كلل على فعالية الإنسان العملية الثورية، التي سوف تغير الإنسان نفسه من جراء تغيير الشروط الاجتماعية التي يحيا فيها.,إن وجود البشر الاجتماعي هو الذي يقرر وعيهم الاجتماعي؛ ولذا فإن الواجب يدعونا لأن نبدأ بدراسة الواقع الاجتماعي الحسي، دراسة «العلاقات التجريبية»؛ لأن هذه العلاقات هي التي تفسر تصوراتنا وأفكارنا، وليس العكس كما يحسب الأيديولوجيون الذين «تصبح الفكرة المجردة عندهم القوة المحركة للتاريخ، بحيث يرتد التاريخ إلى تاريخ الفلسفة»، أو إلى «مجرد عملية تطور الوعي».,وكونهما يرفضان هذا التصور، فإن ماركس وإنجلز يرسمان الخطوط الكبرى لتصور جديد للتاريخ، إنهما «يهبطان من السماء إلى الأرض»، وينطلقان في دراسة تاريخ البشر، ويستخلصان الفكرة الخصبة القائلة: إنّ المحرك الفعلي للتاريخ هو من دون الفكر إنتاج الحاجات الإنسانية.,إن جميع الثورات وما آلت إليه من عواقب تحددها شروط وجود الناس وحاجاتهم المادية؛ ومن هنا فإن العمل -العمل المنتج- وأشكال تقسيمه هي التي تشكل «مسرح التاريخ الحقيقي». ولما كانت حاجات البشر تتغير باستمرار وتتطور وتتعدد وتختلف من عصر إلى عصر، فإن هذه التبدلات هي التي تقوم في أصل التحولات الاجتماعية.,ولذا كانت بنية المجتمع وقفًا على نمط الإنتاج القائم تاريخيًّا، وإن كل نمط للإنتاج ينطوي على نمط معين للتعاون، وبالتالي على شكل معين للعلاقات الاجتماعية. وعلى العموم، فإن نمط الإنتاج مرتبط بطبيعة القوى الإنتاجية التي كوّنها وطورها التاريخ السابق للجنس البشري.

It could be argued that one area that has produced some useful advances in educational psychology (amongst others) has been the use of better measurement of variables. Two aspects of this better measurement stand out. One involves the use of Rasch Measurement Models and the second involves developments in computer technology. Rasch measurement is relatively new. It was first worked out mathematically by George Rasch in the 1950s and published in 1960. Its use and development have been steadily growing and Rasch measurement is now on the point of producing a minor revolution in fields like educational psychology. Rasch measurement makes a striking advance on True Score Test Theory in a number of ways. What really brought the Rasch measurement revolution into focus were the advances in computer technology. This book, contains many papers that use linear measures of variables.
