The Adventure as Experienced by the Researchers
This chapter, originally conceived as a discussion of the research intentions behind the lessons in Chap. 2, how the research was carried out, and what results were developed, underwent a major expansion and enrichment. These resulted from the fact that in going back to produce this discussion, Brousseau became conscious of a degree of complexity that was more apparent in retrospect than in the process of living it. Delving into that complexity broadened and deepened the discussion.
