Pragmatic problem with paradigms.

Snowden, Austyn

Authors



Abstract

There is increasing recognition that the concept of
research paradigms is flawed. Despite this, these
concepts continue to drive research hierarchies.
Unless research practices actively reject paradigmatic
dogma, this situation will persist. This paper
introduces concurrent analysis, a new method
of narrative analysis originating in the rejection
of paradigmatic presuppositions. The paper is
divided into 3 sections.
