Bias in Jody Glittenberg's "To The Mountain and Back" and Dennis Werner's "Amazon Journey"?
[ send me this essay ]
A 4 page discussion of the bias which is characteristic of much of anthropological research. While some scientists contend that research can be designed and conducted in such a manner that one’s values, or the values of the subject, do not interfere with the findings; others contend that such research is an impossibility, that individual values are an inherent influence on research. Certainly neither Glittenberg's nor Werner’s approach is value free. No additional sources are listed.
