Research on Remembering: Interrogation or Conversation, Monologue or Dialogue?
Meacham, John A.
The implications of the dialectical perspective for research methodology are reviewed and illustrated with examples from research on memory and memory development. Three conversations or dialogues are described: within the researcher, between the researcher and the research participants, and between the researcher and social-historical context. It is suggested that traditional research methodology can be strengthened by embedding it within these dialogues, thus giving greater emphasis to creativity and meaningfulness of research, to the protection and interests of research participants, and to the social responsibilities of the researcher.
