This book provides an accessible introduction to the philosophy of educational research. A historical-philosophical journey presents the development of research methods from their origins to the present day. It can also be used as didactic material for classroom discussions on educational research, educational philosophy, and current controversies in education. Its usefulness reaches the social sciences, humanities, and experimental sciences in all areas related to teaching and training. The basis of educational research is exposed, both in its concepts or philosophical visions and methodologies, which ultimately define what education means today.

Topics discussed in the book include:

  • Basics of Educational Research;
  • Mixed, Quantitative and Qualitative Models;
  • Ethics in Scientific Research;
  • Current Problems in Education;
  • Historical Evolution of Educational Research
