Abstract

Epistemologies have a determined reality perception and determined ontological acceptances. In this sense, epistemologies have criterions about what the knowledge is. The interpretative epistemology, as one of the epistemologies, makes for heterarchic/chaotic/culture-bound and built reality perception. In this direction, Interpretative epistemology has a chaotic reality perception. The interpretative epistemology, that makes for such an ontology, makes of knowledge on the basis of “cultural connection”. The interpretative epistemology, highlighting the cultures and the changing symbol and the meanings, has arisen as opposed to positivist epistemology. In this article, starting from the reality perception and ontological acceptances of the interpretative epistemology, the epistemological acceptances, method and techniques, basic approaches and the acceptability-trustworthiness-boundedness of the knowledge made by way of interpretative epistemology, are going to be examined.

Keywords
