The dilemma of case studies: Toward a heraclitian philosophy of science

Perspectives on Science 9 (4):373-382 (2001)
Abstract
: What do appeals to case studies accomplish? Consider the dilemma: On the one hand, if the case is selected because it exemplifies the philosophical point, then it is not clear that the historical data hasn't been manipulated to fit the point. On the other hand, if one starts with a case study, it is not clear where to go from there—for it is unreasonable to generalize from one case or even two or three.
