This blog is a continuation of a dialogue that is based on Michaela Raab and Wolfgang Stuppert's EVAW blog. I would have preferred to post my response below via their blog's Comment facility, but it cant cope with long responses or hypertext links. They in turn have had difficulty posting comments on my YouTube site where this EES presentation (Triangulating the results of Qualitative Comparative Analyses (EES Dublin 2014) can be seen. It was this presentation that prompted their response here on their blog.
The rest of this post responds to particular points that have been made by Michaela and Wolfgang, and then makes a more general conclusion.
