Abstract: 

Free-thinking was first introduced by positivists in the methodology of research. They believed that a researcher in the humanities, as in natural sciences, should be independent of any influences of whatsoever values and preferences. The advocates of the interpretive and critical approaches disagreed with this theory in general or in part, by introducing a wide range of topics. This dialogue in the methodology of research still retains its warmth. What makes this issue, from the point of view of ethics, deserve the attention of the authors –and the nature of the subject and purpose of the issue of free-thinking provides the opportunity – is the possible to plan for free-thinking as an ethical issue and to recommend free-thinking as a moral norm. Since the subject of free-thinking means the values that a researcher can keep himself away from their sphere of influence during his research process, despite the long discussions on the different research approaches, is still ambiguous and controversial. The need for a reliable reference to determine such values is the third involved element in the possibility of the ethical presentation of this issue. This article is an attempt to determine the controllable values in the process of research from the perspective of the Islamic sources. Through this effort, it has been proven that by preservation and treatment, human beings can keep themselves away from the effects of ignorance, fear, greed, and prejudice as the universal and inclusive obstacles of free-thinking.
