Next, the authors providepractical instruction for deploying each of the methods individuallyand in combination. They walk the researcher through each stage ofthe research process, starting with issues of concept formation and theformulation of causal claims in ways that are compatible with case-basedresearch. They then develop guidelines for using Bayesian logic as a setof practical questions for translating empirical data into evidence thatmay or may not confirm causal inferences.
