A qualitative research approach was used to carry out the study. Qualitative research can be defined as "any kind of research that produces findings not arrived at by means of statistical procedures or other means of quantification" (Strauss and Corbin, 1990, p. 17). Domegan and Fleming (2007) state that, “Qualitative research aims to explore and to discover issues about the problem on hand, because very little is known about the problem”. Qualitative data sources consist of observation, interviews and questionnaires, documents and texts, and the impressions and reactions of the researcher (Myers, 2009). The researcher is considered the primary instrument of data collection and analysis in qualitative studies.
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.
According to Case and Keats (1982), only the conventional kind 1 design is applied by huge majority of quality control practitioners due to their wider availability and case of application. Hamaker (1958) is also of the same opinion. According to Peach (1947), the subsequent are some of the major types of designing plans, rooted in the OC curves, classified according to types of protection; 1. The plan is precise by requiring the OC curve to lead through or (nearly through) two fixed points. In certain cases it may be possible to impose some additional conditions.
According to Andre Boundreau, “Things that are held to be true in a given context that drive us to action if there were no impediment”. Albert Einstein believed that, “The only source of Knowledge is experience”. Knowledge means knowing someone or something from facts and could be obtained through experience or education. Knowledge is the familiarity gained by sight, experience, or report. According to Merriam Webster, “Knowledge sums up what we know that comprise truth and information.
This is ascertained by the successive positioning of the contextually similar phrases of “out of the blue”, “for no reason”, which effect an attempt at overt justification. Furthermore the interweaving of vague language in the delivery (“uh”s and “I guess”) imbue a more temporal quality to what was meant as an epistemological realisation, an equivocation which merely summons a faux sense fastidiousness that ironically nullifies the proposed conviction of
Pretty much the no sharp line problem is our own perception of the way we see and say things. Our words have vague meaning to it. Meaning there's no clear definition of what someone really means when they speak. It's like telling someone to do something; without telling them what it is you want them to do. The semantics of words are vague and may or may not change depending on the context or subtext of what's being said.
Reductionism is generally a belief that statements of one kind are translatable into other kinds. It is often thought in reductionism that one translation is accepted as true. Quine rejected this dogma by rejecting the meaning . The verification theory of meaning of logical positivism is rejected because of the rejection of the meaning. If the verification theory of meaning is rejected, reductionism is rejected ,because one translation cannot be reduced down.
This however does not mean it is a mere nothing. Sankara clarifies that the “Brahman seems non-existent only to the feeble minded.” The concept of salvation in most Indian schools remains something which can only be felt, only be attained but not preached or expressed. This notion of inexpressibility is not limited to Indian philosophical schools. While Kant talks about the unknowability and the inexpressibility of the noumenal world, Plato in his Republic, giving the cave analogy talks about how the individual must go on a quest to attain knowledge about the forms which are otherwise inexpressible and the closest we can come to expressing them is through an analogy. Perhaps this is why salvation is something which has to be attained by every individual on his own.
1. 6. “Robust knowledge requires both consensus and disagreement.” Discuss this claim with reference to two areas of knowledge. The Human Race has always felt in need for having consensus and disagreement in what concerns to knowledge. “Robust” knowledge itself can be defined as a type of ability that allows humans to apply it in their own world of things and at the same time be able to make use of it.
