Example text

To explain this second trajectory, one can begin by considering Raymond Boudon (1995), who considers the macro-sociological explanation proposed by Max Weber: protestant religious doctrine→ capitalism. Boudon relates Weber’s theory with facts that have emerged through empirical researches and obtains three situations: (1) facts that are explained by theories (for example Trevor Roper’s researches. These show that several entrepreneurs in Calvinist areas, such as Holland, were not Calvinist but immigrants with other religious values); (ii) theory is not enough to explain facts (for example Scotland is from an economic point of view a depressed area, even though it is next to England and here Calvinism is as widespread as in England.

I call the second [approach] ‘sociology of association’. It is obvious that Latour’s attention to the formation of new collective actors, such associations (which Latour calls actors-network) finds a parallel in action research, and distinguishes his approach from those using the paradigm of objectivity. Latour writes (2005, pp. 124–125): The question is not whether to place objective texts in opposition to subjective ones. There are texts that pretend to be objective because they claim to imitate what they believe to be the secret of the natural sciences; and there are those that try to be objectives because they track objects which are given the chance to object to what is said about them.

He must be able to see, to listen, and to feel sensitivity to social interactions of which he becomes a part. The objective of the action research/co-research is not only knowledge but also action, and it is precisely the intertwining between research and action that characterizes this kind of research. PFL’s researches and those based on participating observation are characterized by a [hypothesis→ fieldwork→ analysis→ conclusion] sequence, and differences are in the type of field work used. In the action research/co-research the sequence is more complex, as it is characterized by several research steps and actions: [Research (hypothesis→ fieldwork→ analysis)→ Action (action→ outcomes→ analysis) → New research (hypothesis→ fieldwork→ analysis)→ New action (action→ outcomes→ analysis) →].
