Chapter 27: It takes a community to make a difference: evaluating quality procedures and practices in trust research
Empirical science is a collective quest for answers to questions directed to the resistant character of the given empirical world under study. One has to respect the obdurate character of that empirical world – this is indeed the cardinal principle of empirical science. Empirical science pursues its quest by devising images of the empirical world under study and by testing these images through exacting scrutiny of the empirical world. (Blumer, 1969: 21)
