Re-opening Research: New Amateurs or New Professionals?
In this book, we have seen many examples — both historical and contemporary — of ways in which systematic inquiry has been conducted outside the walls of the university. Sometimes, those inquiries have been those of lone ‘amateurs’, sometimes they have been undertaken within groups or as a form of collective life in particular geographical regions and sometimes, too, they have been organised even on a national basis. So, the extent or the level of such nonacademic inquiry is not at issue. What have been at issue, I think, have been other matters.
