Sample text

In the second phase of the inquiry, according to Dewey, we are motivated by such feelings to construct an account of why we feel doubt. In short, we construct a problem that explains our feelings; usually by focusing on something about the situation which is absent or lacking. The feelings of anxious unfamiliarity I experienced on my walk back to the hotel soon made me realize that I was lost, of course, and that I didn’t actually know the way back to the hotel. I realized that my colleagues would now be way ahead of me (even if I was heading in the right direction), and that the organizers would also probably have locked up and gone by now.

The first phase of an inquiry then is when this doubt or anxiety in a situation is sensed, for example, the feeling that something is not quite right and that the way forward is uncertain. Here’s an example from Peter, which we will develop over the next page or so. I was recently attending a two-day workshop at a University in Madrid. I had not been to the University or the city before, and in the morning I had walked in from the hotel with colleagues busily chatting away, not really taking note of where we were actually going.

The result of this is three-fold: the doubt which permeated the situation is now resolved, the situation itself is transformed into a new one, and the individual has laid down a new means of coping that feeds into later sense-making processes. I decided to head back to the university. Even if the organizers weren’t there and I couldn’t find a friendly student, maybe I would be lucky and recognize a landmark, street name or something, and, at least, I would be out of the rain. On the way back, I passed a bus stop, and at the bus stop, there was a large map indicating where I was, showing clearly the street on which my hotel stood.
