By positing a reality that cannot be separate from our knowlege of it (no separation of subject and object), the interpretivist paradigm posits that researchers' values are inherent in all phases of the research process. View of Criteria for 'Good' Research Interpretivist positions are founded on the theoretical belief that reality is socially constructed and fluid.
