‘This recently published book is a challenging and very rewarding contribution to the debate on expertise in professional and vocational education. Rooted firmly in philosophical debates about knowledge, practice and expertise, the book also features contributions that draw extensively on psychology, and engages with work from the sociology of scientific knowledge.’
Jim Hordern, Bath Spa University, UK (Journal of Vocational Education & Training, 2019)
