Abstract
The theme of this monograph of Informing Science is a dialectic we

elements is subject to change. As reflection triggers change in use, and

such change triggers further reflection, a spiral comes about. Lived human

experience, and reflection upon that experience, seems to shape a

double helix. The monograph contains contributions exploring particular

ways in which studies of use could benefit from a relationship to
