How does your understanding of the connection between philosophical worldview and research methodology assist in your research approach?

There are three aspects of a research framework which together consists of a single group of three research approaches: Qualitative; Quantitative; Mixed. Two of these aspects are (1) the philosophical worldview, consisting of Constructivist and Transformative worldviews which are Qualitative; Postpositivist which is Quantitative; Pragmatic, which can be both qualitative and quantitative, hence its classification as Mixed and (2) the research method which includes all types of research related questions, data collection, data analysis, and interpretation (Creswell, 2014) pp 5, Figure 1.1.

The favored worldview philosophy of the researcher will consequently determine the research approach (qualitative, quantitative, mixed). Each respective research approach, in turn, has its own bias corresponding to the quantitative vs qualitative and mixed methods refer (Creswell, 2014) pp 16, Table 1.3). to see the comparison regarding research questions; data collection; data analysis; interpretation.

Compare/contrast philosophical worldview with that of a Christian worldview. Are there any areas that are problematic, or do most philosophical worldviews appear to be congruent with a Christian worldview?

A worldview is an all-embracing perception of the world from a specific viewpoint which guides our actions accordingly A Christian worldview is consequently an all-embracing perception of the world from a Christian lifestyle and beliefs viewpoint. When we conduct any research whatsoever, as Christians we are duty bound to do so through a Christian lens. The Constructivist and Transformative worldviews are Qualitative; Postpositivist is Quantitative; Pragmatic can be both qualitative and quantitative (mixed). In this regard, Postpositivist because of its scientifically reckonable and quantitative background is therefore inherently incongruent with a Christian Worldview. However, the other three worldviews, Constructivist; Transformative; Pragmatic because they all encompass qualitative descriptive communication, can, therefore, be compatible and harmonizing with Christian worldview beliefs and actions.
