D844 Block One – Exercice 2 Question 3: What do the two models have in common?

According to Hammersley and Atkinson (2007) the two competing philosophical positions in ethnography: positivism and naturalism, have in common that they both try to maintain a detached position of the researcher, and they both consider social interactions or phenomena as objects.

They should be seen as complementary each other instead of  rival methods.
