This paper is written in response to Nancy Davis’s article Integral Methodological Pluralism in Science Education Research: Valuing Multiple Perspectives. I use Integral Theory as a framing for this response to explore how it might offer different perspectives and ways of inquiring into Nancy’s paper. This process highlights the notion of integral inquiry as a potential for personal transformation. I give an autobiographical account of my own experience in utilising Integral Theory as part of my PhD and its impact on my own becoming. For another perspective I interview Nancy to draw out deeper shared meanings.
