The aim of this paper is to add to discussions on the role of paradigmatic worldviews when planning for a research study. An understanding of paradigmatic developmental trajectories is necessary when planning a study and can shape the search for understanding. It is hoped that the discussion presented here will assist both novice and experienced researchers in their articulation behind the rationale for their paradigm choices.
