Theory and practice in the social sciences - a presentation-based discussion session led by Andy R, based on a 20-minute lecture-style presentation followed by discussion. The paper summarises critiques of positivist approaches and explores perspectives on activist and critical research - how a researcher can avoid the "repressive reduction of thought to the present", and how certain approaches to research encourage this reduction.
