Abstract

Address to the Society for the Philosophy of Science in Practice conference, Aarhus:

Philosophers and scientists often pride themselves on being party to a discourse more rational than popular debate. However, all attempts by theorists to make a positive impact on practice are mediated by the economic and political contexts in which theoretical and practical debates interact. The challenges this presents are analysed with reference to the history of the EBM debate and illustrations are also taken from earlier debates about organisational theory and the developing area of person-centred care.
Research in these areas needs to acknowledge the difficulties in balancing meeting the demands of the policy agenda with retaining intellectual integrity and making contributions which are of genuine use to practitioners.
