Making our brain space 32 instead of 16 GB!


reflection on Guba&Lincoln 2005


Today’s class is more interesting than previous 2s. I can say, i learnt new terms 12 actually, which are really one of those important words whichevery researcher should know. The problem is, whether we could keep all these in mind after some time ago?

We are discussing stance of philosophy and science alongside with religious beliefs. I like the discussion all is going great, but i didn’t hear an opinion that maybe all these inventions, the paradigmatic shift that replaced one’s opinion with another’s boom opinion and ideas, is just as one of the psychologist Marsh added “….. Nothing we design is ever truly novel-every creation effort contains vestiges of what we have experienced in the past”.

So, we need to think of from such points to have clear and more understanding and idea of paradigm and its groupings.

However, the only thing that i don’t like is comparing scientific terms and their explanation with that of religious ones. Well,i don’t have anything against the religious belief and stuff like that, but we are future scientists and we should not compare all the terms with religious beliefs or see what Bible states.

The only thing that i don’t like now is we were asked to find the explanation of terms, but the instructor didn’t mention to find the roots and where it started and by whom. I did it, but no one asked to share. I don’t know, weird kind of!

Next, we are going to do a research but, no one is interested in research itself, well maybe they feel comfortable with their further research but not me, i want to know more, because you know 15 weeks for research methods were not enough to completely be in  that sub field let’s put it in that way.

All other stuff is okay and very interactive as well as engaging.
