Abstract [en]

The aim of this article is to introduce some theoretical frameworks which may develop the researchgoing on within phenomenography and variation theory. Central concepts from the epistemological and cognitive theories of Charles S. Peirce, Niklas Luhmann and Margaret Boden are presented and their implications for phenomenography and variation theory are discussed. Peirces concept of the semiotic triad clarifies the interrelations of conceptions, their linguistic expressions and their meanings or referents. Luhmanns concepts of primary and secondary distinctions point out an implicit hierarchy of dimensions of variation. Bodens notion of conceptual spaces as grounds for explorative and transformative creativity points to the relevance and value of becoming familiar with the conceptional spaces of the outcomes of phenomenographic studies. Finally, Ipoint to the possibility of including the notion of a hidden curriculum of the discipline as animplicit dimension of variation in classroom studies based on variation theory
