Summary

Guides students through the step-by-step procedure of qualitative social research using the dialogical hermeneutic method of analysis.

The first undergraduate guide to qualitative ethnographic fieldwork, this book describes a step-by-step procedure called the dialogical hermeneutic method of analysis, including its philosophical basis, practical application, and ethical implications. The authors delineate the characteristics of the scientific and humanistic paradigms in the social sciences and emphasize that the hermeneutic method is employed in the humanistic paradigm. They discuss topics often missing from fieldwork manuals, such as journal keeping, personal and interpersonal relationships, ethics, and writing the ethnographic essay.

The exercises at the end of each chapter challenge the reader and also provide step-by-step guidance into the intricasies of field work. The questions of 'challenge' and 'horizons of understanding'are highly original in the rethinking of observer bias. The text is practical and constructive as it progresses through the epistemological minefield of field work.
