  • Empirical and theoretic.

    Thanks for the nice, clear presentation, George.

    The distinction between bricks and cement is useful to identify holes and biases in our knowledge. But this distinction can also (erroneously, I believe) lead to identifying them as two different knowledge forms. What you identify as the 'cement' is certainly conceptual and theoretic, but the 'bricks' can be this too. Knowledge of bricks does not equate simply to empirical knowledge, it can be conceptual too.

    I cover some of this in its relevance to recruitment here:
