Ideology and the Social Sciences

By Graham C. Kinloch; Raj P. Mohan | Go to book overview

change if I want to. I think it's the nature of life, being able to adapt to those changes, experiencing those changes, and so on.


NOTES
1.
However, the same difficulties in claiming independence haunted those whose supervisors happened to be committed to poststructuralism:

PV6: I resisted Foucault for ages and ages particularly because my supervisor seemed so keen. I always try not to follow, so I resisted for ages. I got to the point where I realized that I wanted to use Foucault for my own interests, to my own ends. I've sorted through a lot of shifting alliances.

2.
The political nature of postgraduate research, the personal and intellectual implications attached to particular choices, is largely written out of the "how to do it" texts (e.g., Cryer 1996; Phillips and Pugh 1994). This has the effect of making the research process appear more orderly and manageable than it actually is. It also may lead students to attribute difficulties that have a political component to their failure to plan or manage their work properly. Salmon ( 1992) work, which stays with the accounts of postgraduates, does reveal the tensions and difficulties attached to theoretical choice.
