For today's post, consider the reading from Bhattacharya about the various schools of thought, theories, that can impact the decisions we make as qualitative researchers. In 250-300 words, identify one or more theories that speak to you--so theories you agree with or have encountered before or that you think is totally ridiculous. Write a little bit about what you understand about that theory both from Bhattacharya and from your own lived experience--perhaps you encountered it in another class or while watching something or exploring social media or thinking about the news.
Then, expand that idea. Write about the ways you see some of these theories affecting how you or how other people actually make decisions in life. This is tricky. People don't walk around saying things like, because Marxist theory affects how I think about the world, I'm not going to buy a new car but instead buy a used one. But, in fact, a belief that we don't want or need a lot of new stuff all the time is shaped by a belief system and that belief system is based on one theory rather than another--or a combination of theories.
