Objectivity and Subjectivity in Social Research Paperback / softback


Objectivity and subjectivity are key concepts in social research.

This book, written by leading authors in the field, takes a completely new approach to objectivity and subjectivity, no longer treating them as opposed - as many existing texts do - but as logically and methodologically related in social research. The book debates:- the philosophical bases of objectivity and relativity - relationism and dynamic synthesis- situated objectivity - theorised subjectivity - social objects and realism- objectivity and subjectivity in practiceThe authors explain complex arguments with great clarity for social science students, while also providing the detail and comprehensiveness required to meet the needs of practising researchers and scholars.
