Abstract

BENGTSSON, Jan. With the lifeworld as ground. A research approach for empirical research in education - the Gothenburg tradition. Indo-Pac. j. phenomenol. (Online) [online]. 2013, vol.13, n.spe., pp.01-18. ISSN 1445-7377.

This article is intended as a brief introduction to the lifeworld approach to empirical research in education. One decisive feature of this approach is the inclusion of an explicit discussion of its ontological assumptions in the research design. This does not yet belong to the routines of empirical research in education. Some methodological consequences of taking the lifeworld ontology as a ground for empirical research are discussed as well as the importance of creativity in the choice of method for particular projects. In this way, the lifeworld approach has its own particular perspective in phenomenological, empirical research in education. The article concludes with a description of an empirical study based on the lifeworld approach in order to illuminate the possibilities for empirical research in education as well as the significance of this approach for education.
