Abstract:

Postmodernists and critical scholars, in critiquing empirical and quantitative social scientists, often confuse the empirical scientific enterprise with positivism. Positivism is a philosophic system that excludes metaphysical and other non-empirical concerns. Use of empirical or quantitative methods is not the same as the embrace of such a system. Alternative perspectives, notably pragmatism, are discussed, and a perspective that emphasizes recognition of the boundary conditions of any epistemology is urged.
