Sample text

In drawing upon my Pragmatist and Interactionist (Hughes, 1971; Park, 1967; Thomas, 1966) theoretical orientations and keeping with the social justice aim of feminist research (Oleson, 1998), I want to bring about social change and make persons' lives better. But you are not likely to find me on a street corner carrying a sign or leading a protest. I recently attended a conference where I made mention of the small demonstration research project that I did as part of this book. ” Well, I am indeed outraged, and in fact I was very disturbed while doing the mini-study on veterans of the Vietnam War.

Knowledge [p. 5 ↓]leads to useful action, and action sets problems to be thought about, resolved, and thus is converted into new knowledge. In a continuously changing world, generating one contingency after another, this interplay of practice and inquiry is also continual. ) This is why the Pragmatists drew no hard and fast line between everyday (“commonsense”) thinking and the more systematically controlled scientific types. They didn't address—but would certainly have applauded—views of organizational action, for instance, much of which is hardly haphazard but carefully planned and evaluated.

First, the book is a more open, analytically, reflecting changes that have occurred in myself. Second, the first chapter begins by explicating the theoretical foundation underlying the approach to research presented in this book. Though this chapter was written several years before Anselm's death and was meant to be part of the 2nd edition, when it came time for publication, the theoretical material in the chapter was deleted by the editor. It was thought that perhaps it was too theoretical for a basics book.
