Example text

I am not arguing that we reduce the number of questions by ignoring many of them. Instead, I am arguing that we need to calibrate and organize. Calibrate the importance of questions in order to identify the most important ones. Then organize the other questions hierarchically as subsets of the most important questions. All questions that we have dealt with in the past are still important to examine, but not all questions are equally important. We need to organize our research efforts by first organizing our thinking about what is most important.

We need to regard the concepts and methods from other scholarly fields more as tools that need to be translated into our purposes; in so doing, we will need to hybridize some of them in order to extend their usefulness to us. And perhaps most important, we need to shift from inductive processes to deductive processes that cluster around theories and provide rigorous programmatic tests of them that continually shape their mapping precision through falsification as well as support. This will orient us toward convergent thinking more so than wandering around in divergent topic seeking.

Third, a general framework should offer a structure that serves to organize our understanding of the mass media phenomenon. Beginning with the next chapter and extending through all the chapters in this book, I offer a general perspective that I call lineation. I believe this to be an apt Why Do We Need a General Framework? label for this general framework because lineation means the marking with lines, a division into lines, or an arrangement or group of lines. Throughout this book, you will see many allusions to lines.
