conflict? I'm currently starting to write a dissertation for my 3rd year project and wondering if someone could give me some advice? I'm finding published research papers that conflict each other, obviously up until now I have taken them and anything in textbooks as gospel. But now i'm in the situation where different papers suggest different theories and in numerous cases are conflicting each other WITH either their own experimental evidence or some mathematical derivation which proves their case mathematically. So, what do I do? How do you decide (without doing your own experimental research) which is correct? Or do you just kind of summarise each theory and describe how they differ from each other? Thanks for ANY hints / advice on this!
