Chapter 1: Scholarship, knowledge, concepts
Open access

This chapter reflects on the nature of scholarship as operating in a domain of (theoretical) knowledge, and of concepts as the building blocks of the knowledge domain. The realms of theory and practice are connected through processes of denotation of objects by concepts and of reference of concepts to objects. We retain experience in concepts and use them to give meaning to new actions. Scholarship is thus entwined in a cycle of thinking.
