An Epistemologically Based System for Classifying Research and the Role of Clinical Intervention Research in That System.
Wilson, John W.
In Part I of this paper certain epistemological considerations are reviewed as a source of suggestions on bases that might be used in classifying research, and the problem of validity of knowledge is discussed. In Part II the attempt to apply these bases and the attempts to answer the particular questions concerning clinical intervention are reported; generative research, confirmative research, and analytic-synthetic research are defined and discussed; and postulates of science and of clinical intervention are analyzed.
