"What a Long, Strange Trip It's Been...": Twenty-Five Years of Qualitative and New Paradigm Research
Lincoln, Yvonna S.
Qualitative Inquiry, v16 n1 p3-9 2010
Tracking the history of qualitative research is to some extent a personal journey, reflective of the individual's own experience in the field. Many scholars participated in the ongoing dialogue around the shift from a solely positivist model of research to a multiple-models context. There still remain some philosophical and practical problems, around which the field will be in dialogue for some time to come. Those problems include the issue of rapport, especially in the face of an increasingly critical turn in the social sciences, and the stances adopted for mixed-methods models. Conversations around these and other issues have never been more urgent, in light of the National Research Council's press for a return to conventional scientific inquiry. (Contains 3 notes.)
