Are there good examples where positivism works well in social science? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Is positivism never a good thing in social science?
    I'm trying to find examples where a positivistic approach has worked well in social science. Maybe Durkheim and his use of statistics in the study of suicide?
    Do anybody have any suggestions?
