Epistemological Errors in behavioural sciences inquiry: clogs on the wheels of knowledge


Continue Anddison Eketu

This paper examined the epistemological errors inherent in behavioural sciences research. The paper contended that these errors constitute clogs on the knowledge creation possibilities in the social sciences. It demonstrated that the objective of research endeavours is not the celebration of methodological superiority, but rather an exercise in discovering the truth, the closeness of research outcomes to the truth. It advocates for methodological pluralism to complement methodological weakness of one method with the strength of another. The paper proffered possible treatments to the identified errors, with particular note on the peculiar nature of the behavioural sciences, which demands a more logical and discrete treatment in its knowledge and meaning making.
