This piece of work explored the nature of truth in research by narrating the development of knowledge through Mode 1 and mode 2 knowledge, including the recent discussion around mode 3 system. The impact of this on researchers was emphasised by mode 1 (theory) knowledge and mode 2 (practice) knowledge filling the theory-practice gap. Mode 3 system knowledge aimed to encompass both mode 1 and 2 but included innovation as part of the knowledge development. The work discussed research paradigm in relation to ontology (reality of the things we know/truth) and epistemology (knowledge/the way we know things) including axiological assumptions (value) and same related to the of research methodological interest of individual researchers.
