The Myth of Rational Research.
Thomas, Gary
British Educational Research Journal, v24 n2 p141-61 Apr 1998
Discusses negative consequences of researchers' faith in positivistic inquiry: (1) it promotes the idea that certain rationalistic ingredients are obligatory in research; (2) it leads to faith in models of the mind based on order; and (3) it leads to a notion of teaching as articulating "know what" rather than "know how."
