Abstract: Just as the concept ''paradigm'' energized the human sciences in spite of its many definitions and uses, so now does the concept ''reflexive'' seem to be of increasing salience, again with many definitions and uses. It is argued that reflexivity, as a fundamental human quality underlies various attempts to understand and intervene in human relationships. By juxtaposing paradigms, reflexivity, and therapeutic progression it is possible to set out several types of reflexivity, some relatively self-contained and others at the edge of our possible ''knowledges.''.
