Writing Our Lived Experience: Beyond the (Pale) Hermeneutic?
Geelan, David R.; Taylor, Peter C.
Electronic Journal of Science Education, v5 n4 Jun 2001
Makes a case for an alternative epistemology of research based on the hermeneutic-phenomenology of Max van Manen (1990). This interpretive approach to understanding the nature of a social phenomenon involves the researcher in making explicit the meaning of a particular lived experience and generating a pedagogical thoughtfulness in readers.
