The PhD Blog: Being Clear About Methodology, Ontology and Epistemology When you begin writing your PhD you'll need to get to grips with some academic language. Your degree title is a Doctorate in Philosophy and this suggests that a minimum requirement is that you are conversant with the philosophy of research. In particular, you need to get on top of three very important concepts. Methodology ... to do with the tools and techniques of researchOntology ... to do with our assumptions about how the world is made up and the nature of thingsEpistemology ... to do with our beliefs about how one might discover knowledge about the world Whilst there are some philosophical traditions that problematise these concepts, most research students need to articulate their position in relation to each term individually and collectively ... even if it is simply to refute the need to do so because you are subscribing to a view of the research process which denies our ability to subdivide in this way.

What is your paradigm? Time to spend on this section: 2.5 hours Across disciplines (and within) there are varying views of what research is and how this relates to the kind of knowledge being developed. Paradigms guide how we make decisions and carry out research. According to Guba (1990), paradigms can be characterised through their: ontology (What is reality?) In order to get to grips with this, we need to clarify what these terms mean.

A Guide to Isaac Asimov's Essays Copyright © 1995 by Edward Seiler and Richard Hatcher. All rights reserved. To the Isaac Asimov home page To the Isaac Asimov FAQ To Jenkins' Spoiler-Laden Guide to Isaac Asimov Introduction Though perhaps best known throughout the world for his science fiction, Isaac Asimov was also regarded as one of the great explainers of science. His essays exemplified his skill at making complex subjects understandable, and were written in an unformal style, liberally sprinkled with personal anecdotes that endeared him to a legion of faithful readers. It was all a labor of love; in particular Asimov often remarked that of all his writing, his essays for The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction were his favorite, despite the fact that he received the lowest word-rate payment for them. Asimov didn't stop with his F&SF essays, however. With such a huge collection of essays, it can pose a problem for the reader who remembers a piece that Asimov wrote, but can't recall the source.

Benvinguts Som en Joan i l´Esther, Un dia ens vam adonar, de que ens passàvem bona part de l´any, planejant les nostres vacances, i de que era massa el temps que havíem d´esperar perquè arribessin aquelles 4 valuosíssimes setmanes, en les que aprofitàvem per a fer una de les coses que més ens apassionen, viatjar. Reflexionant sobre aquest fet, va ser com ens vàrem plantejar una pregunta que sovint ens havia rondat pel cap: Que passaria si deixéssim aparcats família, amics i feina per marxar una temporada llarga? Marxem sense cap pretensió, no fugim de res, ni tenim cap crisi existencial, no esperem fer-nos, més savis, ni més rics, ni més feliços, no anem a descobrir-nos a nosaltres mateixos, ni a trobar un lloc nou per a fer arrels, simplement, ens morim de ganes de conèixer el món i de relacionar-nos amb ell. Aquest blog, no pretén ser l´ABC del viatger, només volem que el nostre somni sigui compartit. Així doncs dedique-nos uns minuts, cordeu-vos el cinturó, i prepareu-vos per viatjar.
