This chapter discusses the Descartes, logical positivism, the ontological turn, and post qualitative inquiry helps in explaining the difficulty with the concept, embodiment. It believes that embodiment is thinkable only if one believes the body is absent and must be reintroduced. The ontological turn offers new concepts for thinking and being differently, and scholars who reads the literature which already puts it to work in their lives and their inquiry. The legacy of positivism is apparent in behaviorialist definitions of the field that emphasize data collection, hypothesis formulation and testing, and other formal aspects of systematic empirical enterprise. A body of literature called variously the new empiricism and the new materialism shifts the attention from epistemology to ontology. The argument is that the discovery model of science put into place centuries ago that spawned a multitude of knowledge projects exhaust to some extent and that it’s time to turn to the ontological.
