Motives and Meaning Amongst PhD Supervisors in the Social Sciences.
Hockey, John
British Journal of Sociology of Education, v17 n4 p489-506 Dec 1996
Utilizes an interpretive social psychology framework (examining the role played by language and the social contexts through which people account for their conduct) to explore the stated motives of PhD supervisors. Identifies three categories of motives--intellectual, functional, and subjective (self-esteem)--and discusses the use of language within each one. (MJP)
