Multiple Perspectives on Research from One Educational Researcher: A Revisitation of Teilhard de Chardin.
Place, A. William
This manuscript examines the uneasy relationship between qualitative and quantitative research. The multiple perspectives of qualitative researchers, quantitative researchers, and critical theorists should be "harmoniously engaged in an earnest dialogue, lifting the discussion to a new level of insight, making progress toward workable solutions of educational problems, and generating theory that fit together" (N. Gage, 1989, p. 10). This work expands that discussion utilizing Teilhard de Chardin's works and suggesting that the various reflections of qualitative research, quantitative research, critical theorists, and race-based epistemologies are how the process can be improved that is becoming the future of the human race. (Contains 20 references.) (Author)
