“When you’re doing research, your question is not ‘What does it tell me?’, but ‘How does it enable me to act?’ Your research is about discovering how to act and how to go on acting. It doesn’t stop. It’s not something which is done and finished and then you say ‘Now we go on to the next phase.’ It’s something which is done all the time. All the time you need to know how better to act.”
