Cultures of Inquiry provides a unique overview of research methodologies in social science, historical and cultural studies. John R. Hall describes eight interconnected methodologies that transcend present-day disciplinary and interdisciplinary boundaries. In this way, he is able to move beyond the objectivism/relativism debate in the philosophy and sociology of knowledge by showing how alternative research practices are formed. His book connects concrete methodological issues of research to contemporary philosophical and postmodern debates about knowledge.

Book Description

Cultures of Inquiry provides a unique overview of research methodologies in social science, historical and cultural studies. John R.

In this way, he is able to move beyond the objectivism/relativism debate in the philosophy and sociology of knowledge by showing how alternative research practices are formed. As a book that connects concrete methodological issues of research to contemporary philosophical and postmodern debates about knowledge, Cultures of Inquiry has no equal.
