Abstract

In this article, I examine three claims that in some senses can hinder the supervisory process rather than facilitate it. These are the claims that the relationship between supervisor and student should be a friendship; that students writing their theses should demonstrate 'own voice'; and that students should choose supervisors on the authority of their academic lineage. I shall argue that although these claims are fruitful, we need to be aware of their inherent risks and of the appropriate limits of the key concepts.
