Example text

For many of the students and more recent members of the lab, the program was mostly available in terms of immediate sets of technical tasks, with a developing horizon of prior studies, and concurrent studies not related to those tasks becoming available at the scene of the work. This was how the lab was available to my inquiry, given the amount of practical involvement and familiarity with the detailed workings of the setting I attained. I can only speculate as to whether some­ thing in the order of an overall program was available, and as to how it was available to "veteran" lab members and especially to the lab director.

This experience with the progressing of a project from its onset until the time of its completion in the writing of a research paper are treated in the following remarks on the character of the practical and technical work in the project. My practical involvement in the project was limited, as was the corpus of materials used in warranting these remarks. The described features do not in-and-of-themselves constitute an adequate analysis of the practical availability of a project in its course, but do suggest some issues that would have to be confronted in such an analysis.

After each negative result came in the experiment was altered slightly in further attempts to "control" for any circumstantial "variables" which were imaginable as "factors" that may have suppressed the result. Since the list of such possible "factors" was always extend­ ible by taking into account further analytic aspects of the experi­ mental procedures and circumstances, the repeated failures were not definitive grounds for abandoning the project. Instead, the eventual "shelving" of the project involved the assessment of the possible discovery as not worth pursuing any further, in light of practical necessities for maintaining the lab program with routinely successful findings.
