To speak of doing social work science raises “boundary” questions as to the relationship between science and other forms of knowledge and action. I preface sketches of some key examples with a brief reference to ideas of “action.” Personal knowledge (for example, experience and commonsense), art, political action and power, faith, and ideas of skill fill out this part of the chapter. I move on to think about doing social work science and, finally, doing good social work science.

Keywords:   kinds of knowledge, action, common sense, art, faith, power
