Theory, experience and practice

Michael Loughlin, Jonathan Fuller, Robyn Bluhm, Stephen Buetow, Kirstin Borgerson
2016 Journal of Evaluation In Clinical Practice  
Despite its potential hazards, the activity of questioning theoretical frameworks and and proposing solutions is necessary if progress is even to be possible.  ...  Intellectual history has by no means ended so we cannot expect to have all the answers, and from time to time the activity of critical questioning will be frustrating.  ...  They consider experience of alienation of mental states and actions and propose that the experience of thoughts, feelings, impulses and actions as not being one's own is the experience of not being able  ...

Cell Suppression: Experience and Theory [chapter]

Dale A. Robertson, Richard Ethier
2002 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
A discussion of the information lost from a table with suppressions will be given, with consequences for the evaluation of patterns and of suppression heuristics.  ...  Our experience has shown that the biggest challenge has been to teach the basic ideas. The theory is not difficult to grasp, using only elementary mathematics, but clarity of thought is required.  ...  Properties of the problem and its solution could be studied, and a more objective way to evaluate the heuristic methods would be available.  ...
