Discourse, subjectivity and the policy realm : reconceptualising policy workers as located subjects. / Reconceptualising policy workers as located subjects.

Gill, Zoë Margaret Alice January 2007 (has links)
Title page, table of contents and abstract only. The complete thesis in print form is available from the University of Adelaide Library. / This thesis identifies two hegemonic discourses circulating within and around the policy realm - the logic of agency and the logic of rationality. Combined, these logics constitute policy workers as ’rational agents’: people who believe they can (logic of agency) objectively identify and solve policy problems (logic of rationality). These discourses affect the ways in which policy workers perform their work, impacting upon substantive policy outcomes. --p. v. / http://proxy.library.adelaide.edu.au/login?url= http://library.adelaide.edu.au/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?BBID=1282200 / Thesis (Ph.D.) -- University of Adelaide, School of History and Politics, 2007

Policy in question: from problem solving to problematology

Turnbull, Nicholas James, Social Science & Policy, UNSW January 2005 (has links)
Since the postpositivist critique of the policy sciences, policy theory has come into question. More particularly, the ???problem orientation??? upon which Lasswell defined the policy sciences has come into question because policy making does not conform to his problem solving logic. That logic is inadequate. I argue that we must reconsider the problem orientation at a philosophical level to reconstruct it upon a more appropriate foundation. This thesis does not depict how we should conduct policy making but deals with foundational concepts and issues. I draw on Michel Meyer's new philosophy of questioning, problematology, to consider policy theory in terms of questioning and to reconstruct the problem orientation on problematological grounds. The thesis is in two parts. Part I reviews and critiques past policy theory in terms of questioning, commencing from the problem solving basis of Dewey's philosophy and Lasswell???s ???policy sciences???. I criticise this basis and outline how it made politics and argumentation residual aspects of reason. I discuss how the postpositivist critique problematised the policy sciences and how this permits us to pose policy theory itself as a question. Part II answers this question by reconstructing policy theory upon the problematological foundation of knowledge. Meyer???s logic of questioning incorporates problematicity in answering, allowing us to account for the politics of policy. I outline the dynamic nature of the logic of questioning and how it incorporates key concepts of interpretative epistemology; hermeneutics, dialectic, and rhetoric. I conclude by describing policy making as a synthesis of two questions: the policy question and the question of legitimacy.
