Reflection on the analytical tools book
The purpose of this chapter is to present the main theories and concepts upon which the research has been built. We have already argued that mainstream studies are seldom explicit about their own theoretical foundations – by definition, mainstream views are perceived as based on common sense. A critical research instead must begin with a clarification of the analytical tools in order to make it possible for the reader to understand (and eventually criticize) the logic behind the research process.
