  Title Rigor in the philosophy of chiropractic: beyond the dismissivism/authoritarian polemic
Journal J Chiropr Humanit. 2005 ;12():Online access only p 16-32
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article
Abstract/Notes Background: Based upon writings on the philosophy of chiropractic, there is an analytical framework that dichotomizes thinking in the philosophy of chiropractic into two as yet unacknowledged methodological approaches.

Objective: To illustrate the polemic and to provide an example of how critical inquiry has the potential to advance the understanding of the philosophy of chiropractic and to contribute in a meaningful way toward contemporary healthcare.

Discussion: It is argued that neither group discussed has been successful in advancing understanding of the philosophy of chiropractic or health care. A third approach, in which the notions of critical inquiry and rigorous analysis are used, is presented.

Conclusion: The philosophy of chiropractic can become a discipline advancing the understanding of the nature of the philosophy, its ability for pragmatic application, and its potential to enhance society.
