ABSTRACT

This paper attempts to criticize social research methodologies with regard to its standardization from the perspective of phenomenology. To achieve this, the paper analyzes and criticizes factor analysis on which quantitative research is made. Besides, qualitative research through which researchers try to overcome the limit of quantitative research is proven to have its limitation of being standardized, which results from its blind acceptance of methodology. This paper suggests that blind adoption of methodology is related to the crisis of science and that the character of phenomenology as die Wissenschaftslehre (the Science of Knowledge) can serve as a way to cope with the academic crisis. Therefore, the paper concludes that researchers as the world-builders must challenge against the methodology.
