A book qualitative researchers have long waited for! This text concisely explains how to do hermeneutic phenomenological research. Drawing on Heidegger, Gadamer and the phenomenological movement, and rooted in a distinctively interpretive paradigm, the authors' methodology is interested in understanding people’s perception of meanings, their views and lived experience. The book leads readers through the research process, from the refinement of the research question, literature review, data collection, interviewing and data analysis to reflexivity, research ethics and dissemination.
Phenomenological philosophy is often perceived as a lofty and verbally verbose form of learning, without practical value or merit. However, reading this book certainly puts paid to that illusion. The practical topics of research that these active researchers explore are so humanly psychological, dealing with socially pressing themes that require better understanding.
