Group Proposal – Research Procedures / Methodology

Social science perspective is one of characteristics of existing methodologies. The page of research procedures / methodology is showed in Research Procedures / Methodology for Artists & Designers which is written by Carole Gray and Julian Malins that saying social science methodology actually comes from Newtonian Science Methodology and Quantum Science Methodology. Meanwhile, social science perspective is also the synthesis of above two methodologies. There are different aspects of knowledge such as cultural, educational, behavioural and empirical that would be used in social science perspective and even that providing a multifarious guidance for researchers.

The term of bio-hacking is mentioned in the assigned brief, so what is bio-hacking?

Our group started with the term of Bio-hacing and we are trying to link different aspects to this term. So we can say that we were discussing how to use correlations of various fields in social science perspective.

At the beginning of human beings, they attributed the world they living in and lots of phenomena to spirits and supernatural things. However today, our natural world is studied by the scientists, philosophers, biologists and so on. (Methodology & Perspectives of Social Sciences,Smt. Shilujas.M, p4)

In methodology, doing research just like doing a biological experiment. Biologist would do a plenty of experiments from various ways even they put those research experimental outcomes as objects so that they can precisely acquire an answer what they want to figure out. So the same as methodology, combining versatile knowledge from other areas such as cultural, educational and behavioural to get a comprehensive result.

Overall, for students, researchers or even teachers, to get a well-founded outcome via an multidisciplinary approach through social science perspective is a way to synthesize multiple disciplinary perspectives and try to redefine problems and then get a new perspective or understanding of complex situations.
