Tacit Knowledge
Tacit Knowledge
by Neil Gascoigne
Edition: Paperback
Price: £18.99

4.0 out of 5 stars A well written account, 10 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tacit Knowledge (Paperback)
For those of us with an interest in knowledge qua knowledge, tacit knowledge presents itself as a difficult nut to crack, particularly in these (somewhat lamentable) days where evidence- based practice is seen to be the standard against which all else is measured. Gascoigne's account is lucid, accessible and compelling. It draws on a number of extant theories regarding the case for the centrality of locating tacit knowledge as a core component within any framework to account for knowledge production and use and highlights well the relevance of tacit knowledge in all that we do, particularly in relation to professional practice. For those of us initiated into the craft of epistemology and all its complexities, this text is essential and balanced reading.

3.0 out of 5 stars An interesting disc but it won't blow you away, 3 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The thought of a piano reduction of the mighty 2nd is enough to give anyone palpitations and as such it is remarkable. However, and perhaps not surprisingly, the piano doesn't quite cover it all. The playing is pretty amazing though. The piano reduction of the Titan is more appealing and comes,out the best here. An interesting addition to the shelves for all Mahler lovers.

Doing Q Methodological Research: Theory, Method & Interpretation
by Simon Watts

5.0 out of 5 stars Much more than an intro to Q, 15 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This text is a MUST HAVE for anyone working with Q Methodology. Watts & Stenner provide a crystal clear account of the process and products of using Q and also help make sense of some of the many technical issues involved in analysis. I found their explanations invaluable in understanding much better how to use PQMethod for example - the instructions with that programme, whilst sufficient, do need to be unpacked, and W & S do that well. A full 10/10 for this text, and the signposting to other important papers/texts is also invaluable. Well done!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Time for an electronic guide, 5 Feb. 2012
I agree with the previous reviewer: the time is nigh for an electronic guide to classical music/DVD's etc. If Gramophone are to make the most of their reputation then they need to get this sorted quickly before others do (i.e: Penguin and the Squires Gate lot [who also produce an excellent guide]).

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Mahler on disc!, 4 May 2011
This review is from: Mahler: Symphony No.2 (Audio CD)
Simply to endorse the existing review: this is the best Mahler 2 on disc. I picked this up when it was first issued on vinyl a long time ago and was blown away. The CD version is just as good. This is Mahler 2 as it should be: intense, majestic, plaintive (Urlicht will bring tears to your eyes: the Mezzo is divine) and powerful. The final bars could break your windows or cause a serious rift with your neighbours, so be careful. A fantastic performance and a technically superb recording.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the most dramatic 'Resurrection'!, 17 Feb. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have over the years listened to dozens of recordings of Mahler's cataclysmic 'Resurrection' symphony and have a fair number of versions on my shelves. Seeing this new recording I immediately bought it without hesitation; Rattle's earlier foray with the CBSO was very good indeed and with the Berliner's on this one I had high hopes. What a disappointment!! Tempi are at best slow and at worst soporific. The sound engineers appear to have 'flattened' everything so that the dynamics are neutralised; either that or Rattle fell asleep and the BPO are on auto-pilot. I'm no technical expert when it comes to music but my guess would be that this is technically very good indeed but it is emotionally sterile. I would suggest that if you want to invest your money in a performance then go for Solti & the Chicago SO on Decca or Tennstedt's latest with the LPO.
