Issues in Adult-Child Interaction: Six Philosophical Orientations.
van Kleeck, Anne
Topics in Language Disorders, v5 n2 p1-15 Mar 1985
The article discusses the contributions as well as shortcomings of six philosophical orientations to social interaction research: (1) rationalism, (2) empiricism, (3) pragmatism, (4) social constructivism, (5) phenomenology, and (6) systems theory. Two approaches--the ecological and the ethnographic--are seen to combine several philosophies to gain the most complete picture. (CL)
