Abstract

ACEVEDO, Carlos. Consensus of Validity: Quantitative and Qualitative Methodology Dialogue. Cinta moebio [online]. 2011, n.42, pp. 276-287. ISSN 0717-554X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-554X2011000300004.

This article is divided into three sections. First, we define the state of physical science and logical positivism, concluding the transit of both towards constructivism. Second, we outlined the Piaget constructivism. Third, with the intention of developing an example of this confluence in social sciences, we argue that few criteria of qualitative methodology validity are completely complementary to those contained in the statistics (paradigmatic technique used for quantitative analysis).

Keywords : validity; methodology; statistics; logic positivism; physical.
