The Theoretical and Empirical Fields of Research
Perceptions must always be interpreted by reference to some interpretive framework. On my trip through Rajasthan, whilst my companions on the bus looked at the saris in the fields in terms of a tourist discourse celebrating rural beauty and peace, my reference was sociological discourse and what I saw was the operation of patriarchy and power.
All observation acts selectively and transformatively through the imposition of its own categories, that is, by reference to an organisational language (OL).
Education (in general) is to be understood as the acquisition and transmission—that is to say, the institutionalisation—of organisational languages.
Research OLs are explicit (in contrast with many others, such as those of the journalist, the novelist, the politician (at least, in the UK)).
