Transformative Phenomenology Summary


Transformative Phenomenology: Changing Ourselves, Lifeworlds, and Professional Practice by Edited by David Allan Rehorick

Transformative Phenomenology captures the influence of phenomenology and hermeneutics on non-university-based scholar-practitioners who completed their doctoral education in later life, thus blending their workplace experiences with their intellectual interests. Contributions from seasoned university-based scholars expands our understanding of phenomenological inquiry in fresh ways. The concept of 'transformative phenomenology' springs from the long-term teaching and research experiences of David Rehorick and Valerie Bentz, the book's co-editors.

Transformative Phenomenology Reviews


This book is a masterful example of the transformative potential of phenomenology as a methodology and a way of living one's life open to possibility. These scholar practitioners bring the reader inside ordinary lifeworld experiences such as illness and personal trauma, corporate environments, cultural identity, artists and jazz musicians to reveal the extraordinary understandings to which their writing gives voice. As a phenomenologist, I highly recommend this book for an accessible entree into the methods of phenomenology, based on Husserlian and Schutzian approaches. Be prepared to experience your own transformation and 'possibilizing' as you read and engage with it! -- Francine Hultgren, University of Maryland
A wide-ranging collection of compelling research studies and personal reflections. Displays the wide range of ways that phenomenological analysis can enrich understanding of one's self and others and makes phenomenology's insights readily accessible. -- Frances Chaput Waksler, Wheelock College
The essays in this collection offer an important display of the power of phenomenology as a method that can also be a form of life. I recommend them both for the wide range of human experience that they bring within the purview of phenomenology, and for their reminder that the beginning and end of phenomenology, as of all philosophy, is the sense of wonderment. * Springer Science + Business Media *
