Indicative Topic: Knowledge

How do we understand the relationship between both knowledge and world and knowledge and research in our own practice. What relationship do we have to positivist concepts of knowledge? Do we regard knowledge as products of a regime, or a contingent solution to infinite variety? If knowledge and world are continuous how can knowledge expand? What is the status of knowledge in an intellectual regime informed by extreme relativism, as for example in radical constructivism? How can this kind of knowledge be reconciled with more systemised discursive practices?
