The Epistemological Foundations of Quantitative Research Mind Map
This mind map of the epistemological foundations of quantitative research is used to improve quantitative results or to increase background knowledge that would otherwise be difficult to gather using quantitative designs (Muntaner & Gómez, 2003). The benefits of using qualitative data may be best understood by looking at the underlying philosophical views, particularly from an epistemological standpoint, because the nature of knowledge is characterized and classified by purpose and design, as shown in the mind map of the epistemological foundations of quantitative research. A critical approach seeks to empower and identify emancipatory information, whereas a postmodern/poststructural approach seeks to deconstruct previously held truths and rationales.
