This chapter suggests that the particular unities of meaning people come to construct in their "wanderings" and "wonderings" are similar to those they construct as they read a text. Indeed, Raelin goes so far as to question whether the idea of leadership-as-practice can continue to be expressed in terms merely of an influence relationship between leaders and followers. The chapter explores what is involved in a particular social group coming to share a particular common sense, such that each member, on finding themselves at any one moment with a particular experience. Common sense is judgement without reflection, shared by an entire class, an entire people, an entire nation, or the entire human race. The chapter outlines the sequence of steps involved, and their nature, is quite different from those of the problem-solving process. In contrast to processes occurring within a Cartesian-Newtonian ontology, in terms of both its properties, and its effects on the self of investigators.
