(2007). Making a mess with method.
In: Outhwaite, William and Turner, Stephen P. eds.
The Sage Handbook of Social Science Methodology.
London: Sage, pp. 595–606.
If the world is non-coherent, then methods that seek and describe it as coherent are making a mess of doing so. This argument is developed empirically and philosophically. After showing that the comment sense realism of standard methods works to other non-coherence, the chapter recommends non-coherent or 'messy' methods.
