Historians identify two types of positivism: classical positivism, an empirical tradition first described by Henri de Saint-Simon and Auguste Comte, and logical positivism, which is most strongly associated with the Vienna Circle, which met near Vienna, Austria, in the 1920s and 1930s. Postpositivism is the name . Phillips gave to a group of critiques and amendments. Zammito, John H. (2004): A Nice Derangement of Epistemes.

Constructivism vs Positivism - a false debate? ✪ Paradigms and Positivism. John H. Zammito (2004): A Nice Derangement of Epistemes.

This volume presents in a forthright and lively way, an account of the philosophical position generally identified as 'Postpositivistic' that undergirds much of mainstream research in education and the related social sciences. The discussion throughout is informed by recent developments in philosophy of science. Authors D. C. Phillips and Nicholas C. Burbules cite a number of interesting examples from the educational research and evaluation literature to illustrate the value of a scientific approach. Many educational researchers aspire to carry out rigorous or disciplined inquiry aimed at producing accurate (and generally 'truthful') accounts of educational phenomena and the causal psychological or social processes that lay behind them. However, many recent critics have argued that it is a mistake to believe that research can yield theories, or advance claims that are true, objective, and value-neutral. In other words, that researchers always work within frameworks that embody important (and often questionable) assumptions about values and the nature of human knowledge. This book argues that , while there is much to be learned from recent critiques, traditional scientific values and assumptions are not outmoded. The authors show students how to implement and benefit from the scientific method in ways that take into account recent critiques.

Packed with good stuff in here, Phillips & Burbules have all you need for entering the educational research debate. The text provides a great foundation and basic understanding to branch out from. Excellent citation source too.

It is a nice, short account of scientific methods in post positivism era. The hard notions of objectivity and truth are well developed.

Excellent all the way around. I would buy from them again. Very satisfied overall.

This is very good primer on postpositivism for those doing research in education--well written, easy to follow, and quite short! Highly recommended!
