Realism in Research.
House, Ernest R.
Educational Researcher, v20 n6 p2-9,25 Aug-Sep 1991
The incorrect Humean notion of causation in the standard view of science has had devastating effects on social science research. Alternatively, scientific realism, as illustrated in R. Bhaskar's work, provides a scientific framework for research, incorporates the perceptions and intentions of participants, and advances critical values (i.e., social justice). (RLC)
