Not yet rated | write a review
Max van Manen offers an extensive exploration of phenomenological traditions and methods for the human sciences. It is his first comprehensive statement of phenomenological thought and research in over a decade. Phenomenology of practice refers to the meaning and practice of phenomenology in professional contexts such as psychology, education, and health care, as well as to the practice of phenomenological methods in contexts of everyday living. Van Manen presents a detailed description of key phenomenological ideas as they have evolved over the past century; he then thoughtfully works through the methodological issues of phenomenological reflection, empirical methods, and writing that a phenomenology of practice offers to the researcher. Van Manen’s comprehensive work will be of great interest to all concerned with the interrelationship between being and acting in human sciences research and in everyday life.

Editorial Reviews

“I think the labour of this extraordinarily deep and comprehensive text should bear fruit in its immediate uptake for any researchers planning to present the lived experience of a phenomenon without drifting too quickly into conceptual analysis. The author has profoundly enriched researcher practitioners, seeking to understand and use phenomenological approaches...”

—Peter Willis, Phenomenology & Practice
