Reflections on science, research and practice



Last year Markus Hesse was invited to contribute to the Kolumne (‘column’) in disP – The Planning Review, published 4 times a year by Taylor & Francis in association with the ETH Zurich. The journal is devoted to professionals in research and in practice who are interested in European planning issues. For more see http://www.tandfonline.com/loi/rdsp20.

The contribution comprised a series of small commentaries (2 pages) that were addressing popular claims on the purchase of contemporary research, such as innovation, science-policy interaction or transdisciplinarity. These comments can also be read as somehow summarizing a particular style of thought that is cautious on such expectations and insists on a reflective, independent and critical positioning of science in general and the researcher in particular. The fourth and final piece of this series on 'Language' came out recently; a couple of free copies may be still available here: http://www.tandfonline.com/eprint/UJpe8hq2hmW8QwhwCDPR/full.
