Example text

It is as much about the storyteller as about the story. ’ (Whitehead 1985). This is a different mental set from traditional assumptions that knowledge is given. Action researchers anticipate new problematics. Concrete answers do not pre-exist but are created by real people, in negotiation with others. This can be destabilizing for people who are used to being told what to do. Instead of beginning with a hypothesis, which they aim to accept or reject, action researchers start with an idea and follow it where it leads them.

The results can be applied and generalized to other people’s practices, and will be replicable in similar situations. Technical rational research is used throughout scientific enquiry, and has led to massive developments in technology, medical care and space travel. However, many rational researchers assume that the methodologies of the natural sciences can be applied to human practices, so they tend to view humans as machines, or as data. Stringent critiques say that rational research is a myth (Thomas 1998), and objectivity is unattainable.

The individual action researcher has to accept that they have a responsibility to others, and, in their educational relationships as professional educators, to place the interests of the other above their own. Action research therefore may be undertaken by individuals, singly or collectively, but it is always a participative and collaborative exercise, not individualistic. The methodologies of living enquiry are both rigorous and scientific, and always grounded in care and consideration for the other, while still maintaining the integrity and unique capacity of the individual to know and make judgements about the validity of claims to knowledge.
