OBJECTIVES The hierarchy of evidence presupposes linearity and additivity of effects, as well as commutativity of knowledge structures. It thereby implicitly assumes a classical theoretical model. STUDY DESIGN AND SETTING This is an argumentative article that uses theoretical analysis based on pertinent literature and known facts to examine the standard view of methodology. RESULTS We show that the assumptions of the hierarchical model are wrong. The knowledge structures gained by various… CONTINUE READING
