Abstract

GIORGI, Amedeo. Difficulties encountered in the application of the phenomenological method in the social sciences. Indo-Pac. j. phenomenol. (Online) [online]. 2008, vol.8, n.1, pp. 1-9. ISSN 2079-7222.

While it is heartening to see that more researchers in the field of the social sciences are using some version of the phenomenological method, it is also disappointing to see that very often some of the steps employed do not follow phenomenological logic. In this paper, several dissertations are reviewed in order to point out some of the difficulties that are encountered in attempting to use some version of the phenomenological method. Difficulties encountered centred on the phenomenological reduction, the use of imaginative variation and the feedback to subjects.
