: Does anyone know who said "to practice without theory is to set sail an uncharted sea; theory without practice is not to set sail at all" I believe it could be by Susser 1984 but have no futher details & need it for an essay! Anyone help me?

I found this on Google:
'...to practice without theory is to sail an uncharted sea; theory without practice is not to set sail at all'(Susser M, 1968)

cited in Hardiker P and Baker M 'Towards Social Theory for Social Work' in Lishman J (ed) Handbook of Theory for Practice Teachers in Social Work, London, Jessica Kingsley
