Abstract

The article is a contribution to the ongoing debate on fundamental aspects of DBR as a
methodology, with regard to the question of what is being designed in DBR? It argues that
Design­Based Research tends to reiterate a traditional division between theory and praxis.
Praxis is seen as the execution of preconceived plans, designs or interventions. This division
is based on a theoretical mindset where knowledge is perceived as a form of text in the
scholarly mind. The origin of DBR in design thinking reinforces this division as the
vocabulary in industrial design focuses on objects. The article provides an alternative
analysis of the object of design ­ by way of the Aristotelian concepts of episteme, techne and
phronesis ­ interpreted as an event taking place, in the sense of an assembly in the old
nordic ‘Thing’.
