All researchers are philosophers….
because all research is based on how the
world is perceived and how we believe we
can best come to understand it.
Research philosophy is concerned with:
Ontology
Epistemology
Methodology
Ontology:
What is ‘reality’?
Epistemology:
How do you know something?
What is the relationship between
you and what you know?
Methodology:
How do you go about gaining
knowledge?
Research Paradigm:
How we answer these questions
creates a paradigm or conceptual
framework that guides our research
activities.
Research Paradigms:
 Research paradigms guide how a community of
researchers act with regards to inquiry.
 Each paradigm represents a distinct position
that stimulates alternative research questions and
prompts different modes of investigation.
 It is necessary to recognise the unique insights
and valuable contributions as well as the
limitations of each paradigm.
 Do you see reality as something 'out there', as a law of nature just
waiting to be found?
 Or do you believe that knowledge is a social reality?
 How does your own presence as a researcher influence what you are
trying to un/dis/cover?
 Are you part of the knowledge you are seeking or are you external to
it?
 How does your view of what knowledge is affect the way you
research?
 Do you have a clear theory that predicts what you will find out in your
research?
 Do you aim to change the thing that you are researching (policy,
attitudes, institutions etc.)?
