Many perceptions of and insights on qualitative research exist, with opposing assertions about what is perceived as useful and significant work. Instead of selecting the principles upheld by one method, 'model', 'snapshot' or alliance within qualitative research, active researchers can uncover useful exawples from each paradigm. This is because qualitative research is technique based and somewhat separate from the requirement to put an end to metaphysical debates. Simultaneously, methodological perception is a constructive conceptual resource in research investigations. It can be attained by introduction to nearly any intellectual methodological debate, whether from constructivist, naturalistic, positivist or postmodern paradigms, in addition to the detailed reflection of research inquiries undertaken by others. Specific procedures created initially to meet the constraints of distinct concepts can sometimes be utilised for other objectives and from inside other concepts if necessary (Seale, 1999: 465).
