dc.description.abstract Attempts to engage in the interparadigm debate concerning Positivism and Action Research, and proceeds by way of Small's epistimological evaluation of the two paradigms. That analysis is amended and expanded upon by an investigation of the epistemological writings of Karl Popper and Richard Winter. It is argued that Popper's epistemology represents the most sophisticated argument for Positivism to date, while Winter's epistemology is seen as the most sophisticated argument for Action Research to date, and one that is radically anti-positivist. The conclusion is that a careful explication of the epistemological writings of Popper and Winter allows for a richer understanding of key aspects of the interparadigm debate involving Positivism and Action Research. The shortcomings of Positivism and the work of Popper, it is argued, reside in the reduction and oversimplification of an understanding of social reality. Action Research, it is concluded, via its focus on reflexive dialectic, provides a sounder epistemological foundation in terms of which to investigate and understand social reality. en
