summary Circular causality, circular logic and subjectivity are rejected by many scientists while some designers regard them as keys to understanding the design process. With this paper I hope to stimulate a discussion about a largely unquestioned foundation of our field: the form of enquiry. Taking (as others before) this form to be circular, I examine the implications of and for research and education. Ideally, this discussion should inspire a new branch in our field: A philosophy of computeraided design research.
