Transcript

  • 1. Research Skills Involved
    • Opposing views on the skills involved among phenomenological researchers
      • One view:
        • Phenomenologist has a suspension of belief with an attitude of doubt towards the world
        • “ needs to develop specific research skills to enable him/her to get the ‘lived experiences’ without contaminating the data…” (p.1487)
      • Second view:
        • Phenomenologist should have close involvement in the research
        • “ subjective judgment of the researcher is valuable…” (p.1487)
        • (Wimpenny & Gass, 2000)
  • 2. Other General Skills
    • “ ...the use of reflection, clarification, requests for examples and description and the conveyance of interest through listening techniques” (p.1487)
    • Researcher interest in the participants’ stories
    • Skilled at interviewing techniques
      • begins by establishing the context of the interviewees experience, through to a construction of the experience and finally a reflection on the meaning it

  • 4. The Philosophers...
    • Edmund Husserl is know to be the founder of Phenomenology
      • Influenced and trained Max Scheler, Eugene Fink, Alexander Pfander, Alfred Schutz, and Martin Heidegger Studied psychology but found it only describes how we think but not why we think a certain way
      • Believed epistemology was the real starting point for all philosophical reflection
      • Interested in the subjective experience
      • Came up with the notion of intentionality and wanted to study inner experiences as if they were objects of consciousness
      • Developed the notion of lifeworlds and how we all have our own experiences of internal reality
      • Hoped Heidegger would carry on the phenomenological perspective but he did not
      • (Burston & Frie, 2006)
  • 5.
    • Martin Heidegger
      • Influenced by Jaspers, Husserl, Leibniz, Kant, Bultmann, Hartmann, Natorp, and more
      • Fundamentally impacted the development of theory and practice in psychotherapy
      • Provided the foundations for phenomenology in his famous “Letter on Humanism”
      • Member of the Nazi party and highly involved in politics leading to much critic of his theories
      • Studied the relation of language and Being
      • (Burston & Frie, 2006)
  • 6.
    • Max Scheler
      • “ the first in a long series of existential phenomenological thinkers who subjected Freud’s ideas to sustained and sympathetic scrutiny, creating a fertile climate of discussion at the interstices of philosophy and psychotherapy.” (p.130)
      • Influenced by Dilthey, Freud, Nietzsche, and Henri Bergson
      • Started exploring mental illness from a phenomenological frame but later strayed into a more biological approach
      • (Burston & Frie, 2006)
  • 7.
    • Karl Jaspers
      • Influenced by Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Dilthey, Husserl, Heggel, Scheler, Weber, Freud, Kant, Heidegger and more
      • Approach to psychotherapy was based on human freedom and responsibility
      • Studied human experience and saw it as being transcendent
      • (Burston & Frie, 2006)
  • 8.
    • Alfred Schutz
      • Influenced by Husserl’s notion of the lifeworld and expanded on this
      • Analyzed the structures of people’s lifeworlds and discussed the multiple realities that exist within humans
      • Developed the notion called the we-relationship to describe the relationships we share with others and how they change overtime
      • (Bentz & Shapiro, 1998)
  • 9.
    • Leo Strauss
      • Expanded on the phenomenological critique from a political science viewpoint
    • Harold Garfinkel
      • Developed the notion of Ethnomethodology from Phenomenological theories
    • Don Zimmerman
      • Used conversion methods to study how people handle emergencies
      • (Bentz & Shapiro, 1998)
  • 10. Discussion Questions
    • Notice the two opposing views on phenomenological research. How can one theory have two opposite views? Why do you think this is?
    • How do you think one’s lifeworld would influence one’s relationships with others? How might a lifeworld promote or hinder positive relationship formation? Do you believe that we all have different lifeworlds?
