Judging interpretations: But is it rigorous? Trustworthiness and authenticity in naturalistic evaluation

Abstract

This chapter situates Guba and Lincoln’s chapter within the broad philosophical debate about the justifiability of interpretations. The emergence of a new paradigm of inquiry (naturalistic) has, unsurprisingly enough, led to a demand for rigorous criteria that meet traditional standards of inquiry. Two sets are suggested, one of which, the “trustworthiness” criteria, parallels conventional criteria, while the second, " authenticity” criteria, is implied directly by new paradigm assumptions.
