Whatever the results from school, the complicated structure of fragmented knowledge across specialised disciplines poses problems of replication, transference and practitioner adoption. Anticipating these problems, a bold hermeneutic method is proposed, Reflexive Reading, wherein academics are invited to verify their concurrent reading experience.
“The dependence of social structure upon intentional human agency also entails an inescapable hermeneutic moment in social science, one that… may be of greater consequence than any similar or comparable moment in natural science.” (Lawson, Economics and Reality, p.34).
Both ABC State and Reflexive Reading actuate transformative praxis in order to reduce the practice-theory divide. By establishing transcendental, relational meta-methods, we hope to empower a social science capable of dealing with complex, chronic and pervasive social problems.
