Abstract

WALSH, Russell. On evidence and argument in phenomenological research. Indo-Pac. j. phenomenol. (Online) [online]. 2012, vol.12, n.2, pp.1-7. ISSN 1445-7377.  http://dx.doi.org/10.2989/ipjp.2012.12.1.3.1111.

Set against a background of calls for evidence-based practice, this paper explores the role of evidence and argument in phenomenological research. Drawing on Smith's (1998) analysis of original argument, the author considers how evidence can be discerned, understood, and communicated, and the resulting kinds and contexts of knowledge that may be constituted in the practice of phenomenological research. Linking Churchill's (2012) discussion of researcher perspectivity with Smith's analysis of original argument, contrasts are drawn between rhetorical, demonstrative, and dialectical approaches to argument, with proposed parallels to first-person, second-person, and third-person perspectives explored. Implications for argument-based phenomenological research are discussed.
