Educational Action Research, v9 n1 p9-24 2001
Introduces various aspects of truth theories in the context of action research, focusing on truth as correspondence, truth as successful practice, and truth as coherence and paradigmatic truth. The paper describes how action research uncovers the truth, discusses pen discourse as a validity criterion (the truth as consensus), and looks at the relationship between power and truth. (SM)
