Opposition redirected

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


The discursive arena known as qualitative inquiry initially took shape in opposition to the epistemology and politics associated with philosophies of logical positivism and empiricism and the doctrine of value-free science. An identity of resistance and antagonism continues to characterize many who identify with this arena of activity. This paper suggests that perhaps the energy devoted to maintaining this oppositional stance might be better redirected.
