Interpretation, Understanding, and Educational Research


by David P. Ericson & Frederick S. Ellet, Jr. 1982

The difficulties surrounding the application of educational research are explored from the point of view that an empirical understanding of the social sciences is not as effective as a common sense approach to human behavior called "interpretative understanding." Shortcomings of empiricist methodology, laws, and interpretation are discussed. (Source: ERIC)
