Abstract

The author discusses antecedents and consequences of the construction of our knowledge categories for scientific practice and daily life. She argues that methodological and scientific criteria are not the only basis for electing what and what not matters in scientific knowledge. As an example of this, she analyses the existent tension between quantitive and qualitative methodologies as conventional techniques to obtain knowledge.
