Faith, values and metaphysical positionality

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter considers the ways in which a researcher's metaphysical position (belief or non-belief in the existence of God(s)) may affect the conduct of research and/or responses to findings by different audiences. Further to this, it explores complex questions regarding whether metaphysical position is or is not akin to other kinds of ‘values’ that social scientists bring to their work.
