What originally was a set of entries, then a presentation at the Congress was transformed in an article published in the journal Frontiers of the UFRO. The link is here. (In addition to adds to the section of writings as applicable).
And let’s drop the abstract here:
The social research is always a social process. To know about the social life is an activity in which are inserted all the social actors. What are social processes that emerge and it makes sense to engage in a form of social research, the quantitative, that does not seem to take into account these original statements? Rather, in order to understand the quantitative study of the social is precise rather from a recognition of all the social actors are continuously interested in knowing the social life, and part of that quest is a search for information ‘quantitative’.
If you are part of actors able to give meaning to their actions and that require information, we can show that in everyday life, and from the perspective of these actors, emerging information demands that require an approach of an object. That same approach is strengthened, and it requires quantitative information, when developing the organisational world.
Then, actually based on the idea that social life is an activity that requires all the actors to search for information, we can understand the emergence and role of knowledge-based and quantitative in the social life. The recognition of a significant nature, and built a social life does not minimize the need for and utility of quantitative research, but rather it is best understood from that recognition.
