  Title The knowledge of our knowledge
Journal Philos Constructs Chiropr Prof. 1991 ;1(1):14-17
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

Excerpt: What an irony: That the first credible journal in the chiropractic profession dealing with its relationship to philosophy finds its origins at The National College of Chiropractic. How could this be? After all, hasn't philosophy been one of the definers of our profession throughout its history? Perhaps even its cornerstone?

Hasn't the word “philosophy" even been written into many of our state laws (albeit that you can't legislate a person's philosophy, only the application of that philosophy, the practice)? And hasn't philosophy been debated by all sides when disputes concerning our function have arisen? Certainly the term is established in chiropractic, its use understood and accepted and its meaning crystal clear. Mustn't a journal published in 1991 be at least a secondary effort?
