Every research project provides a link between a paradigm, epistemology, theoretical perspective, and research practice. A paradigm is identified in any school of thought – the integrated worldviews held by researchers and people in general that determine how these individuals perceive and attempt to comprehend truth (Fitzpatrick, Sanders, & Worthen, 2003). Furthermore, a paradigm includes an epistemological belief as well as an ontological belief that, when combined together, govern perceptions and choices made in the pursuit of scientific truth. In practice, individuals’ epistemological beliefs determine how they think knowledge or truth can be comprehended, what problems – if any – are associated with various views of pursuing and presenting knowledge and what role researchers play in its discovery (Robson, 2002). Different epistemologies offer different views of researchers’ relationships with their object of inquiry.
But I think the difference seem to be implicitly implied in the reference of the two terms that is transcendental and transcendent. The ideas are transcendental by being ascribed to the very nature of Reason and when they surpass the confines of experience, they are said to be transcendent. The Kantian use of the terms ‘subject’ and ‘object’ in the same passage seems puzzling. The term ‘object’ is used in a metaphysical sense which is proper only from the pre-critical stance of the Critique, to mean the existence captured through pure thought. On the other hand, the term ‘subject’ obtains a compatibly un-critical implication.
Dworkin believes that judges do not have discretion. This is a counter position to my argument that judges do have judicial discretion. Firstly, we need to look at what Dworkin and positivists mean by discretion. Dworkin distinguishes between ‘weak’ discretion and ‘strong’ discretion. The ordinary usage of the term ‘discretion’ refers to ‘weak’ discretion.
Both point to fundamental features of their interpretations as well as some criticism of the other party. Like other ethical theories, both Smart and Fried have different views of ethics and definition of right and wrong. Utilitarianism has its basis in consequentialism, where actions are judged by the results or consequences
Science is applied and used to address a specific problem in many ways. One way is the scientific method when it applied to cloning problems. The scientific method starts with your purpose and ends at the conclusion. In between are the hypothesis, experiment, and then analyze. They all help in building the conclusion.
Semi-compatibilism is a view proposed by John Martin Fischer which only differs from compatibilism in the area of regulative control and moral responsibility. Fischer states that regulative control stems from the view of moral responsibility and is summarized as an agent who has alternative actions available to them. Agents can have guidance control even when they have no alternate possibilities available, and that moral responsibility is a product of the actual events in the causal sequence. The difference in semi-compatibilism from compatibilism is shown through the throwing out of regulative control in order to replace it with guidance control. Semi-compatibilism allows us to confidently attribute moral responsibility even if we are unsure about determinism.
Deontological ethics (or deontology) and consequentialism, two opposite branches of philosophy, developed to answer those question. Deontology argues that they are not the consequences of actions to define them but the reason for which the action was carried out in the first place. Consequentialism, on the other
Traditional researchers who work on Grice Cooperative Principle aim to criticize the practicability of these maxims, yet a research on understanding the sensitivity to the violation of these maxims is to be done. This paper opens out that the main challenge for inferring the meaning of the conversation is in identifying and accessing relevant contextual information. In this paper, I incorporate evidence from several implicatures of violation of Gricean maxim of Cooperative principles to understand that both children and adults are able to accomplish complex pragmatic inferences comparatively in an efficient way, and at the same time, encounter some difficulty in finding what is relevant in
When an epistemology is based on the positivism philosophy, the objectives and the nature of knowledge assumes that everything is based on causality when it comes to knowledge that exists. Secondly, an epistemology based on realism assumes that the nature of knowledge is based on the observable phenomenon (Saunders & Tosey, The layers of research design, 2013). Essentially, insufficient data provides inaccurate information, and some phenomenon may require proper inaccurate information were not collected effectively. Third, when an epistemology is based on the interpretivism philosophy the nature of knowledge is based on the social phenomenon and subjective meanings that change the meaning based on the situation. Finally, when an epistemology is based on pragmatism, the nature of knowledge is dependent on the nature of the questions that are asked and not the nature of the
