Term Definition
postpositivism

a reaction to positivism holding instead that knowledge is provisional and subject to revision and to perspective. It holds that objectivity is questionable but that knowledge is still possible not just in scientific terms but in hermeneutic critical moral and other forms particularly in the social sciences.
