To refer to these rival traditions of inquiry, opponents of positivism in education borrowed the term ‘research paradigm’ from Thomas Kuhn‘s influential historical study of science, The Structure of Scientific Revolutions (Kuhn 1962). They also adapted some of his observations about the emergence of new paradigms in the physical sciences to justify what they saw as innovations in educational research (Alexander 2006, p. 209). This picture depicts fairly accurately more than a century of Anglo-American thinking about research in education.

In short, if educational researchers really are interested in ‘how things are’ within and across times, relations and places, then they need to be transparent about the conceptual framework and concepts that they use to make sense of the multitude of education-related phenomena they are presented with in the very particular moments associated with their claims- and meaning-making.

In its place, ignorance is not seen as a state to be ‘enlightened from’, by convincing argument and proof, even though much that passes as education research seems to be used for such purposes. Rather, we are invited to ‘have an experience’, and possibly, in learning from that, relate to ‘things’ differently, because of the discontinuities that have opened up during the practice of educational research: towards one’s knowledge, in one’s self, in ways of relating self to the self, and to others.
