This is one of my Typed out Reading List as you can see it is heavy in theoretical and philosophical material which incidently touches me/life/society/academia*** at the heart: PHILOSOPHY AND THEORY (anselm and strauss the discovery of grounded theory, charmas 1999 the constructivist version adapted citation). all this is very depressing. anyone who says Academia is not deep doesn’t know what they are talking about. Academia touches you at the root of your being. Academia is a terribly deep dark process. Universities are shining places in my life I adore the places. We as a Family have Academics/Lecturers/Educationalists in our family. Books and Libraries are the centrepiece of our lives. Outside serious social healing.. outside.. there is.

If i ever made it and became well trained well methodologied Dr me me then it might dismiss the misdiagnoses in this substantive yet vulnerable area.

479 words if you are irritated don’t be I need an accurate record and i end up getting a feel for what an article feels like word wise.
