Doctoral student quest... (Delamont et al. 2000 - so true...!)

humanistic ---------------------------------------  mechanistic

It is apparent that there is no single 
definition of the personal, intellectual quest on which doctoral students embark. Indeed we should not expect there to be one . . .

Scientific and academic knowledge 
does not rest on a purely mechanistic set of definitions and requirements. 
(Delamont et al. 2000: 51)
