In these and other ways explored in this paper, Plato demonstrates that paideia has no harbor within philosophy....   [tags: Philosophy Philosophical Essays] 3120 words

Researchers are therefore challenged to ensure quality, addressing audience and format requirements, as well as communicating research findings strategically and reflexively (Creswell, 2013; Patton, 2002)....   [tags: analysis, report writing, write-up]
