[Extract] Novice researchers undertaking a PhD are exposed to different research methodologies, methods, and related philosophies. The emphasis is on developing knowledge and skills as they progress through the research process. Doctoral studies are usually considered research training, or an 'apprenticeship' in research. With the emphasis on investigative processes, the place of philosophy in the Doctor of Philosophy can be over - shadowed. This paper will discuss the role of philosophy in the Doctor of Philosophy, why this important consideration challenges the candidate and, through personal reflection, provides reassurance for those beginning their doctoral journey.
