Abstract

During the past ten years I have been engaged in a methodological investigation of the standards by which social and educational research ought to be assessed. In this chapter I will sketch the origins of this work, the course it has taken, and the reaction to it of some fellow researchers. In particular, I will address the criticism that the approach I have adopted amounts to 'methodological purism'.
