Title

The Path of Passionate Inquiry: A comment on Smith, Young, Weathersby and Andrews

Description

These are stories of four researchers struggling with tasks for which there can be no formal preparation. Young, Weathersby, and Andrews share a background in behavioral research with its reigning paradigm
of theoretical pluralism, a paradigm which avoids efforts to resolve incompatibilities and abandon weak or untenable theories. Smith does not share this background. A mathematician turned educational researcher, Smith was raised in a paradigm of pure theory and research and had to discover for himself the paradigm on which Young, Weathersby, and Andrews were bred.
