“The thesis that there is only one kind of knowledge, only one science, and only one scientific method has been challenged in the past on the grounds that the natural scientific approach is not applicable to the human sciences and their distinct goal of understanding actors’ meanings in concrete historical situations…Nonetheless, the image of a unified natural science still informs the social sciences and contributes to their dominant theoretical and methodological orientation. The debates raging over realist, pragmatist, skepticist, or perspectival interpretations of science all tend to assume science is a unitary enterprise to which epistemic labels can be applied across the board. The enterprise, however, has a geography of its own. In fact, it is not one enterprise but many, a whole landscape-or market-of independent epistemic monopolies producing vastly different products.” - Knorr-Cetina, K.D., 1999.
