Example text

Within this tradition (Confucianism), knowledge is regarded as a ‘lineage’ and as a cultural artefact that establishes collective links and connections that form ‘a relationship between masters and disciples over several generations’ (Lloyd 1996, 32). Accordingly, this lineage is a means of preserving knowledge, tradition, compliance and cultural order. In absolute contrast to these values however, are those that characterise the philosophical traditions upon which western society is founded. Lloyd describes this western (Socratic) tradition as one that is purposely oppositional and is embroiled in a constant cycle of critical and adversarial challenge.

Similarly, both organisations either explicitly (WHO) or implicitly (IHRA) prioritise the reduction of shared injecting paraphernalia (needles, syringes, cookers, swabs, filters and drug solute) in order to prevent viral transmission (but also includes bacterial infection and a wide range of other injecting related harm and injury). Furthermore, both bodies generally advocate achieving these particular aims with a range of related and relevant intervention. However, significant and meaningful differences between the two definitions may be noted in the use of the term ‘comprehensive interventions’ by WHO.

Lloyd describes this western (Socratic) tradition as one that is purposely oppositional and is embroiled in a constant cycle of critical and adversarial challenge. In this tradition, knowledge and wisdom (and their producers) are open to challenge, subject to change and are topics of never-ending debate and/or contestation. Indeed, as Lloyd notes, the requisite of argument (and being able to defend a particular view in the face of hostile challenge) within this tradition seeks to enhance ‘prestige’ (not ‘respect’) of an individual’s academic/philosophical stance within a particular ‘school’ of thought.
