One way to do so is to “nest”. (Eds), Conceptualizing Child-adult Relations. If teaching informed by PK theory is to benefit students and society, and if knowledge is to be associated with power, it will be helpful to overcome or revoke the dichotomies, which are better understood through dialectical analysis, as shown throughout the article.

Whilst critical realism (CR) is becoming recognised as a significant metatheory for the social sciences, there is little guidance on how to produce research which is consistent with its ontological and epistemological assumptions.
