Research is about the creation of human knowledge and understanding; how this knowledge is advanced, expanded, and extrapolated or spawned into multifarious and variegated ways and strategies directed towards mitigation and solution of the problems humanity faces in its existence. In this regard, therefore, research may be regarded as particularistic. On the one hand, research may be focused on matters of social and contemporary concern to a particular group of people, or it may be deemed as irrelevant or of peripheral importance to the same group. Yet on another hand, research may be couched in paradigms and practices that are removed from the knowledge and system of development of a group; in this case, research may be confusing, confounding, and of no practical applicability to those it is meant to educate and benefit.
