Feminist Epistemology - The feminist epistemology has three approaches: feminist empiricist, feminist standpoint and feminist postmodern. Feminist empiricism feel that the traditional ways of obtaining knowledge through social science is still valid; however, gender biases need to be removed in order to fully gain a true knowledge (Travers, 2010, p. 26). Feminist empiricists feel that women are the best tools to obtain objectivity. According to Travers (2010), “women (or feminist, whether men or women) as a group are more likely to produce unbiased and objective results than are men (or nonfeminist) as a group” (p....   [tags: Social Science]

Science Inquiry - Inquiry 2: Force with varied mass Introduction: In this inquiry the relationship between force and mass was studied. This inquiry presents a question: when mass is increased is the force required to move it at a constant velocity increased, and how large will the increase be. It is obvious that more massive objects takes more force to move but the increase will be either linear or exponential. To hypothesize this point drawing from empirical data is necessary. When pulling an object on the ground it is discovered that to drag a four-kilogram object is not four times harder than dragging a two-kilogram object....   [tags: essays research papers] 538 words

Positivism always favors quantitative methods as a large scale phenomenon is analyzed. In interpretivism, there is a great difference between the subject matter of the social science and that in the natural science; the studies of social science therefore require a different logic of research technique (Bryman and Bell, 2007)....   [tags: epistemology, ontology, positivism] 780 words

In support of the constructivist theory of education for future athletic trainers - Educational philosophies differ from person to person. From behaviorist to constructivist and everything in between, the one thing they have in common is that they attempt to explain how people learn. This paper will explain why I tend to lean toward the constructivist theory of education and defend this theory using a variety of current literature. It is important to note that the theories that are talked about as educational theories are often looked at as both theories of teaching and learning; however most of these theories are not theories of teaching but rather learning (Baviskar, Hartle, Whitney, 2009)....   [tags: Educational Philosophy]

Such experiences are a result of living in a social world and are different from those experienced by others....   [tags: Philosophy Education Essays] 1028 words

Inquiry Concerning Human Understanding by David Hume - David Hume wrote Inquiry Concerning Human Understanding in 1748, right in the middle of the Enlightenment and on the eve of the Industrial and Scientific Revolution. So it only makes sense that some of the ideas and comparisons used are slightly outdated, but science, if anything, helps his argument regarding causality. Hume is ultimately concerned with the origins of causality, how we are able to gain knowledge from causality, and if we can even call the knowledge derived from causality real knowledge....   [tags: David Hume, Enlightenment] 1049 words

Cognitive Function Inquiry - ... In the same way a computer stores memory, it also takes time to save memories. While we can handle multiple tasks at a time, only so much information can be absorbed and saved by the brain at any moment. The concept of this limited amount of data we can take in is referred to as, “Cognitive Bandwidth” (Dunning). So although in theory we have unlimited storage space, we are still limited by the number of concepts we can begin to absorb at any given time. While there is not a set number on this cognitive bandwidth, it still provides an insight into how to better use our brains; spacing out the information we plan to take in allows more bandwidth to be available for each memory....   [tags: the human brain]

Inquiry Based Discussion Strategies - Discussions in the elementary science classroom are crucial to understanding scientific concepts. Unfortunately, the term discussions may lead us to imagine the whole group reading, followed by questions generated by the teacher, students restating what was previously read, and finally the teacher evaluating the students’ statements for correctness. This method of discussion is commonly known as initiation-response-feedback or IRF (Willington, 2011). This unfortunate scenario can be replaced by a more meaningful exchange known as inquiry based discussions....   [tags: education, teaching science]
