9781412948630: Realist Methodology (SAGE Benchmarks in Social Research Methods)

Realism is an approach to humanity which recognizes the real existence of social objects as well as physical objects.  It asserts that the things we are studying in social research have some prior existence and would continue to exist even if our knowledge of them was limited. While our knowledge may be wrong at times, realists assert that the real world will tend to constrain science so that wrong claims get challenged. This set includes: 

  • Volume 1: Practical Realist Ontology which covers the nature of the world, the role of the person, the need for social theory, the nature of language, open systems theorizing, and the avoidance of the fallacies of upward and downward conflation.
  • Volume 2: Realist Methods takes up the triangulation debate in some detail as well as querying the nature of quantitative data and of qualitative data.
  • Volume 3: Knowledge and Meta-knowledge in Realism explores the concept of epistemology and the social basis of human knowledge.
  • Volume 4: Realist Empirical Research runs through lessons to be learned from research that has been conducted under explicit realist assumptions in many disciplines in many different countries.
