The Epistemological Foundations of Quantitative Research Summary
This summary map of the epistemological foundations of quantitative research concludes the beliefs about knowledge and how knowledge is constructed. The researchers' methodologies and methods are influenced by one of the philosophical presumptions (Crotty, 1998; Lather, 2006). All facets of the research process are influenced by epistemology, including ingrained presumptions about what is known and the formulation of theories, research questions, and study designs (Pallas, 2001; Collins, 1990). This concept map of the epistemological underpinnings of quantitative research shows how epistemologies affect how research is received and understood within a research community (Pallas, 2001).
