"If at a quantum level things-in-themselves do not conform to the traditional realist outlook, what then are the implications for other kinds of realities?". (Epistemology and Metaphysics for Qualitative Research, p. 179)


"Post-paradigmatic research resists the impulse to catalogue ideas into rigid compartments, instead seeking a critical, creative engagement with philosophy and methodology". (Epistemology and Metaphysics for Qualitative Research, p. 195)


"Here we arrive at understanding postdisciplinarity as a creative, imaginary and somewhat ethereal space in which the mind can be liberated of dogmas, expectations and measurements". (Postdisciplinary Knowledge, p. 14)


"Any attempt to neatly reduce or classify postdisciplinary contributions through a common vision or a programme will lead to failure due to the heterogeneity of postdisciplinary scholarship". (Postdisciplinary Knowledge, p. 7)

"Qualitative research comes in may shapes and forms. We must abandon the idea that there is 'better', sturdier, or more important path to qualitative research". (Epistemology and Metaphysics for Qualitative Research, p. 196)
