A Conversation about Diversity in Research Writing Styles
In this paper we present a conversation arguing for the promotion of diversity in research writing styles. Indeed, the paper is formatted in an innovative manner as a dialogue. Beginning the conversation with a model of wisdom in teaching, learning, and writing, we discuss the question of different types of research writing styles from a number of respected philosophies and authorities. Influenced by heuristic inquiry and reflective phenomenology, our text is as much an artistic, poetic and philosophical reflection as it is an argument for respecting diversity in academic and research fields.
