Abstract "Despite the openness of action research to engage with several philosophical movements from the 20th century, there does not seem to be as much engagement with existentialist thought. I try to point out and further articulate certain affinities that I see between action research and existentialist philosophy. I suggest that action research can gain from exploring these connections. Based on the existentialist perspective, I compare action research and more standard social science. In particular, I use Heidegger’s notions of “das Man” and an “existentialist essence” of human being as a key to bringing out these differences and for suggesting ways in which action research may capitalize on such differences."
