Qualitative Research & Kuhn’s Scientific Revolution

Selecting DataWe carefully select data.  Sometimes it’s rotten, and we toss it out. Of what’s left, we combine it according to our own tastes and preferences.  It’s not random.  Kuhn challenged that science does not simply expose its veracity to humanity.  Kuhn’s science is not exposed to humanity; it is interpreted by humanity, and in so doing, competing paradigms fall subject to the hands of human idiosyncrasy.  Our data is also at the mercy of human idiosyncrasy.
