If there is a premise to the work it is that the contextualisation of academic thought within autobiography adds to the reader’s understanding by situating that thought within an historical–geographical context and within a narrative of personal intellectual progression. This is a proposition that is found to be self-evidently true by the general reader of autobiography, though biography and autobiography nevertheless rarely feature in social scientiﬁc research. The usefulness of such an approach is outlined by Laura Saija in a brief methods chapter that draws on cognate research from psychology to make the case for the use of autobiography as a means to break down the false distinction
