Challenging the Qualitative-Quantitative Divide: Explorations in Case-focused Causal Analysis

Challenging the Qualitative-Quantitative Divide: Explorations in Case-focused Causal Analysis by Barry Cooper and Judith Glaesser
English | 2012 | ISBN: 1441114394, 1441171444 | 288 pages | PDF | 2 MB

This book challenges the divide between qualitative and quantitative approaches that is now institutionalized within social science. Rather than suggesting the 'mixing' of methods, Challenging the Qualitative-Quantitative Divide provides a thorough interrogation of the arguments and practices characteristic of both sides of the divide, focusing on how well they address the common problems that all social research faces, particularly as regards causal analysis. The authors identify some fundamental weaknesses in both quantitative and qualitative approaches, and explore whether case-focused analysis - for instance, in the form of Qualitative Comparative Analysis, Analytic Induction, Grounded Theorising, or Cluster Analysis - can bridge the gap between the two sides.
