Sample text

One is when Godzilla finds all the newly hatched baby Godzillas dead: Godzilla howls in maternal anguish and begins to chase the hero who has helped bring about their destruction. The moment of Godzilla’s eventual death is poignant as well as triumphant: the hero and Godzilla look at each other again as Godzilla dies – a light, quite literally, goes out in Godzilla’s eye. But right at the end one remaining egg cracks and a baby Godzilla emerges, doubtless to fight another day. It all adds up to a very strange image of effectiveness-oriented outcome research.

This, according to Noreiga (1987), shifted the film’s narrative towards an American agenda that addressed a sense of guilt about its nuclear warfare against Japan through the projection of guilt and blame on to the monster. Gradually Godzilla came to be portrayed in American cartoons and comics as a fire-eating dragon rather than a monster with irradiated breath – a more dinosaur-like beast that suggested Godzilla’s existence millions of years prior to the splitting of the atom and obscured the nuclear allusions embodied in the Japanese Godzilla (Kalat, 1997: 156).

This political and managerial requirement fits with the single trajectory of quantitative outcome research and, as Silverman (2000) says, quantitative methods reflect the research approach of government agencies. Modernism and postmodernism Sturdee (2001) and Laugharne (2002) progress the discussion about the underlying assumptions and pervasive influence of EBP, offering a refreshing critique of its positivist and essentially modernist philosophy. Laugharne argues that the notion of ‘scientific evidence’ that underpins EBP is a modernist concept and that EBM is an essentially modernist paradigm.
