Research Philosophy and Method

  • Theresa Bauer


So far this thesis has primarily dealt with a critical review of existing literature. Before moving to laying the conceptual foundations of responsible lobbying and developing the empirical part, this chapter explains the underlying research philosophy and method. Based on the contributions of Kuhn (1970), Feyerabend (1978) and Hanson (1958), social science scholars have increasingly recognized that the theoretical position of the researcher influences the practice of research.
