QUALITATIVE AND QUANTITATIVE APPROACHES
There has been widespread debate in recent years within many of the social sciences regarding the relative merits of quantitative and qualitative strategies for research. The positions taken by individual researchers vary considerably, from those who see the two strategies as entirely separate and based on alternative views of the world, to those who are happy to mix these strategies within their research projects. For example, Bryman (1988) argued for a `best of both worlds' approach and suggested that qualitative and quantitative approaches should be combined. Hughes (1997), nevertheless, warns that such technicist solutions underestimate the

Human Value: quantitative or qualitative?
In the beginning of King Lear, Lear mistakenly misunderstands the meaning of human value. He had asked of his three daughters to express how much they love him. Near the end of the story Lear discovers that human values cannot be measured quantitatively. He comes through this realization through his experience with his three daughters, with the Fool and Edgar on the heath, and with Edgar and Gloucester on the road to dover. Through these three experiences Lear understands the human value is qualitative.
Lear eventually realizes that human value is qualitative, yet it takes him some time to figure

For a long time, there has been a debate among our society regarding the differences
between and advantages of qualitative and quantitative methods. Although, it is not necessary to
conclude which of these approaches can be described as the better one. It is important to have a
thorough understanding of these methods and how they both provide significant information to
psychology. Both methods have their own strengths and weaknesses to them so it is key to know
when one is more helpful to figure out the information you are trying to conclude.

All these methods collect either quantitative or qualitative data.There are two types of marketing research data, primary and secondary. Primary data is collected for a particular project, such as the expansion of Taco Bell into Spain. Secondary data is data that is readily available where the research was already conducted by another agency.

The aim of the study is to explore how effective Aloe Vera would be in the prevention of pressure ulcers in a patient admitted to the orthopedic unit. Based on several studies there is evidence to prove that components in aloe vera play a part in healing and reduction of inflammation, so these researchers wanted to see if there would be some effect on pressure ulcers also.

Political Science research has clearly been relevant and instrumental in understanding the interactions of humans and the world at large. Through analysis and normative change, it has contributed significantly to areas such as political behaviour, comparative politics and international relations. In using qualitative and quantitative tools, political science has increased its relevance through institutions and policies that create change and seek to understand human action.

qualitative and causal-comparative approaches. The qualitative research is an exploratory type of research which helps offer more insights into an existing problem. This helps the researcher to come up with a hypothesis, important for coming up with a quantitative research. This method is ideal when conducting a research involving a small group of people. It is also possible to use this method alongside other methods such as observations and interviews (Bulmer 13). The mixed approach is ideal because it results in a large amount of data that leads to an increased validity of the results.

the same methods used in the natural sciences can be used in social science. Like in natural science, theory is used to produce a hypothesis and this can be verified through observation. Through explanatory theories, positivists give predictions which are tested by direct observation (Marsh and Stoker 2010: 25). Through a positivist lens, by using quantitative research discover causal relations and establish law-like generalisations about social phenomenon. Causality matters very much to those who adopt Positivism. Hume believed knowledge comes from our senses and he considered the implications of ‘cause’ and ‘effect’ within observation.

scientific skills and concepts.
At its core, science is about inquiry, or the act of asking questions and seeking answers. Most labs begin
as the result of a question, which is why the introduction of your lab report should include a question. For
example, suppose you notice that you seem to play basketball better at the court in one park than in
another. After conducting research, you realize that the surfaces of the courts you play on differ. As a
result, you might formulate the scientific question “What effect does the court surface have on the height
that the basketball bounces?” To answer this question scientifically, you could perform several
experiments and gather data.
