    I would like to have information about phenomenological analysis of qualitative data.


    Anything in particular? For instance, there is much phenomenological analysis in Nursing using Heidegger’s concept of care. There is the Husserl process for Bracketing and intentionality. There is the Hermeneutics of Gadamer. In Canada, the author Van Manen from the University of Alberta is an absolutely excellent source for the process of doing phenomenology as a research method.

    If you’re interested in the Social Science perspective, I recommend “Transformative Phenomenology: Changing Ourselves, Lifeworlds, and Professional Practice” Edited by David Rehorick and Valerie Bentz published 2008 by Lexington Books. I attended a one day seminar by Rehorick and found him to be extremely knowledgeable.

    Thanks for your reply. In fact I am interested in the Social Science perspective since I am doing research on teacher education. I will try to get hold of the book you recommend.

    Thanks for your recommendation. Do you know of any papers about phenomenology that can be accessed online?


    PhaenEx Journal of Existential and Phenomenological Theory and Culture

    It is quite an interesting journal, however, it has a philosophical slant that won´t be too helpful to my work. Tks again for your tips!


    Max van Manen has a site called phenomenologyonline, phenomenology is not a method, it is an approach, there is no one way but there are things one can focus on and there are ways of honing one’s focus, if you are analyzing interviews you will be doing more of a hermeneutic phenomenology I suspect….

    thank you very much 🙂 I found the book “Transformative Phenomenology: Changing Ourselves, Lifeworlds, and Professional Practice”.
