Abstract

The production of knowledge in tourism research has reached a point of maturity over last decades, but serious concerns around its future have arisen. An ever-rising number of scholars believe that the current state of fragmentation not only prevents the formation of a shared-epistemology, but leads to a much broader misunderstanding. This essay review does not represent an attack to any scholar in particular, but a criticism that helps thinking in a new alternative fresh view of tourism-led research. As positivism, researchers are prone to use quantitative methods in their respective fieldwork, precluding that people’s voice exhibits a source of evidence. The problem is that sometimes interviewees lie or simply are not cognizant of their own behaviour. This is the reason why some other methods are necessary. The lack of a clear epistemology paves the ways for tourism not to be considered a serious academic discipline.
