ABSTRACT
The article discusses the historical changes which have occurred in two research areas and also the developments which have occurred in education and the social sciences which relate to these changes. The article also discusses the different types of research methods which have traditionally been used by researchers and suggests that if educators really want to enhance human understanding they need to combine the positive ideas that are seen in each type of research. In the past, researchers only validated research which used one type of research method. The article suggests that this should not be acceptable since each type of research method is an imperfect way of knowing or understanding.
