Some authors use the philosophical perspective to prevent confusion with a methodology known as phenomenology. The positivistic paradigm is alternatively known as the quantitative, objectivist, scientific, experimentalist, or traditional research paradigm. The phenomeno-logical paradigm is also known as the qualitative, subjectivist, humanistic or interpretive research paradigm (Collis & Hussey 2003:47).
Positivistic paradigms seek facts or causes of social phenomena with little regard to the subjective state of the individual. Positivism is based upon realism. Thus logical reasoning is applied to research so that precision, objectivity and rigour replace experience and intuition as means of investigating research problems. Positivism is founded on the belief that research on human behaviour should be conducted in the same way as research in the natural sciences.
