Methodological ontology

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlespeer-review


The aim of this article is to consider the question why we can combine quantitative and qualitative methodologies, which represent different and contradictory epistemologies, in social research. This article suggests that, in addition to pragmatism, the more fundamental thing underpinning and legitimizing the mixture of the methodologies is the methodological ontology of objectivism.
