Summary Read First Chapter image missing

"This book presents under one cover some of the best or most developed examples of interpretive investigation to date. It also does a solid job of proving the theory and rationale for this type of inquiry and analysis, but most importantly it collects superior and exemplary instances of it for researchers, students, and teachers. The conceptual framework provided for the book is clearly presented and works exceptionally well for identifying problems with traditional approaches and opening up the hermeneutic avenue. Virtually every chapter presents the contributor's ideas clearly and with evident enthusiasm and commitment. The authors are either highly prominent or well-qualified thinkers and social scientists whose interest and commitments center on the type of work they report here." -- Frank Richardson, University of Texas at Austin

Entering the Circle addresses the practical and methodological aspects of research within the interpretive or hermeneutic perspective. It contains descriptions of exemplary interpretive research projects in psychology and closely allied fields. Offering insight into the range and subtleties of the methods of interpretive inquiry, this collection challenges the reader to question the assumptions behind more traditional research that aims, instead, to objectify human phenomena.
