bracketing, generalization, intersubjectivity, phenomenology, self-reflection, universality



  1. Drew, Nancy PhD


The most important result of phenomenological research is the discovery of inherent intersubjectivity. Strategies for reporting phenomenological research and recognizing its intersubjective aspects are discussed. In addition to its significance for the practice of nurturing care, intersubjectivity is discussed in response to criticism of phenomenology as ungeneralizeable research. As the philosophical foundation of all research, phenomenology's singular position as a philosophy and research methodology is discussed.
