44 Chapter 3 The Idealist/Paradigmatic Trajectory The idealist/paradigmatic trajectory involves a step away from the empirical. It is based on the recognition that even empirical observation involves assumptions about events, and qualities of events that are unseen and largely unseeable (Polanyi, 1958, 196711992). It is the recognition that our knowledge is influenced in great and small ways by theory, general world knowledge, research results, common sense, personal experience, and various implicit and explicit forms of guidance provided by experts in one's area of endeavor.

OUf approach will be to examine various scientific methodological issues with an eye to their attitudinal, critical thinking, and methodological implications for a local clinical science. In so doing, we attempt to retain the identity image of the professional described above as the primary problem focus, and extrapolate the implications of problems in scientific research methodology for local scientific analysis.

One might go so far as regularly to put such speculations out of one's mind, thereby avoiding any possibility of errors. At a minimum, responsible practice seems to suggest that we not put too much stock in such speculative information.
