Local Theories.
Schibeci, R. A.; Grundy, S.
Journal of Educational Research, v81 n2 p91-96 Nov-Dec 1987
Some issues in the debate between qualitative and quantitative researchers are examined. It is argued that "local theories" that apply in particular contexts can allow quantitative researchers to abandon the search for universal theories. Parallels are drawn between local theories in the quantitative tradition and case studies in the qualitative tradition. (Author/MT)
