  3. 3. “The effects of technology do not occur at the level of opinions or concepts, but alter sense ratios or patterns of perception steadily and without any resistance.” “Technology is a mode of revealing… – Mcluhan, 1964 Everywhere everything is ordered to stand by, to be immediately on hand, indeed to stand there just so that it may be on call for a further ordering… We call it the standing- reserve [Bestand].” – Heidegger, 1962
  4. 4. “Where… society is organized around technology, technological power is the principle form of power in the society.” – Feenburg, 2005 Growing interest in Evidenced-Based Practice Limited funding qualitative research in the = Best Practice? health sciences
  5. 5. “Phenomenology is the study of essences… all its efforts are concentrated upon reachieving a direct and primitive contact with the world… It tries to give a direct description of our experience as it is...” - Merleau-Ponty, 1962 The Human Condition (1935) Rene Magritte

  11. 11. “The methodology of phenomenology is such that it posits an approach toward research that aims at being presuppositionless; in other words, this is a methodology that tries to ward off any tendency toward constructing a predetermined set of fixed procedures, techniques and concepts that would rule-govern the research project. And yet, it is not entirely wrong to say that phenomenology and hermeneutics as described here definitely have certain methodos – a way… [which] needs to be discovered or invented as a response to the question at hand.” – van Manen, 1990/2007
  12. 12. Typist/Dattilografa (1911). Anton Giulio & Arturo Bragaglia
  13. 13. “Technology increasingly disciplines our lives, determining the order and pace of our activities.” – Winner, 1977
  14. 14. Enhances Reverses Into • Sorting relevant transcript sections • Data shuffling • “Locating” and “constructing” coding, coding, coding, anecdotes of lived experience yet nothing essential • Identifying quotables • Data analysis becomes generalized • Ability to address whole of relevant qualitative thematic description transcripts at once Retrieves Obsolesces • The computer punch card • Coding using hard copies and a • The computer expert highlighter • Hand-written notes of exemplary quotes
  15. 15. “A medium is a technology within which a culture grows; that is to say, it gives form to a culture’s politics, social organization, and habitual ways of thinking.” - Postman, 2000 “When we as humans are navigating an unfamiliar environment or are under time constraints, we gladly accept or fall into the most accessible, appealing invitation at hand.” - Adams, 2006 Maiko Matsushima
  16. 16. Metropolis (1927) Fritz Lang
  17. 17. “We [should] let technical devices enter our daily life, and at the same time leave them outside, that is, let them alone, as things which are nothing absolute but remain dependent upon something higher. I would call this comportment toward technology which expresses ‘yes’ and at the same time ‘no,’ by an old word, releasement toward things.” - Heidegger, 1955
  18. 18. “All objects invite us to extend or change our relationship to our world. These enhancements or transformations can be minor or profound, but the full spectrum of effects is often unanticipated and unseen until the object is integrated transparently into our lives.” - Adams, 2006 It is only by “standing aside from any structure or medium, that its principles and lines of force can be discerned. For any medium has the power of imposing its own assumption on the unwary. Prediction and control consists in avoiding this subliminal state of Narcissus trance. But the greatest aid to this end is simply in knowing that the spell can occur immediately upon contact, as in the first bars of a melody.” - McLuhan, 1964 Nanna Hannibeb (n.d.) Nicoletta Rusconi
  19. 19. What other habits of mind are created by CAQDAS? Are there certain methodologies or research methods which are not suited for CAQDAS and vice versa? How can we better use CAQDAS within the confines of the social, political, economic, and cultural forces affecting research and researchers’ activities?
