I feel this is my very difficult time and the very challenge time for me in this phd journey......
currentlyI have to understand clearly the research philosophy/research paradigm/research claims where this is not easy job....the long gap between 4th Feb and today,10th Feb doesn't mean I do nothing..but actually I'm blur...what I'm looking for for the research philosophy....Arggggggggggghhhhhh...this coming 3rd march I have to explain to my dear supervisor what research philosophy that I will choose on and actually I think she should tell me 6 months ago....erm...never mind(How can I do....maybe she expect me know on my own...) however I think it is not too late at the moment......
When I look to the Uma Sekaran et all(2001), in Chapter 1-Introduction to Business Research
in page 10, table 1.2 it showed Comparison of three major paradigms underpinning business research; where I feel that every paradigm that I can apply for but is it impossible????...the three paradigms are :
> Positivist research - assumes that all people share the same meaning systems; quantitative; research hypothesis;deductive reasoning
> Interpretivist research- believes that more to people experience physical and social reality in different perspectives;qualitiative;inductive
> Critical research-to empower create a better world; deductives and inductives
actually there are more information on these three paradigms..but i don't know to summarise it..maybe i try after I understand precisely and being able to articulate with my own understand...although I know this is more on though jobs..
ya allah help me ya allah...erm anybody willing to help me too, .......
