dc.description.abstract The Western philosophical tradition has overlooked those forms of truth that are closest to us assertions that draw attention to aspects of the referential wholes that govern our concerned engagement with the world focussing instead on assertions that point to present-at-hand entities the sort of entities that can be decontextualised from our everyday practical concerns and recontextualised in terms of world pictures (theories). Designers, as makers, engage constantly with referential wholes adopting and/or developing appropriate frames of reference as they respond to design situations, making judgements about the final form of design outcomes with reference to relevant referential wholes, and in the case of strong design, bringing to the fore implicit aspects of referential wholes and/or reconfiguring those referential wholes. Space must be made to acknowledge the truth of work that explores the potential of artefacts to deepen and broaden our understanding of ourselves, of each other and of the world. This paper is a development of a previous paper (McLaughlin, to be published) in which I argued that designers proceed by developing orientations towards a situation and that the articulation of these orientations should be considered a contribution to the knowledge of the domain. In this paper I will briefly summarise and expand on that argument by considering issues associated with the validation of such contributions as research. en_US
