Abstract

Scientific research in the areas humanities, education and social sciences is challenging, and the researcher needs to overcome certain difficulties that are rooted in the specific reality of these areas. Research in the areas of humanities, education and social sciences is possible as can be observed through acquired knowledge, new discoveries and practi­cal applications that can be transferred to a specific reality. Understanding about human, social and educational realities as well as about everyday life is essential, and it can be ob­tained through research in the aforementioned areas. Examining these areas of knowledge is especially useful as a procedure to bridge the existing gap regarding to the instruments, techniques and procedures that are used in natural sciences. Such a disparity is not posi­tive in modern societies nor does it promote social justice. On the contrary, it limits the possibility of living life to the fullest.
