postmodern World
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.
