In this article we argue for an approach to educational research based on philosophical hermeneutics. In this approach an understanding of educational issues could be based on interpretations of empirical data related to theory. Our argument is that various aspects of the educational system can be understood if a distance is enabled between a pre-specified theoretical frame and empirical data. Conceptualised as a field the interpretational frame suggested in this article illuminates different aspects related to educational theory, and thereby interpretations of that which is near and taken for granted are made both explicit and possible.
