Overview

The authors argue it is essential to examine the linguistic and communicative practices that are used in the production of introspective data, and thereby make an important contribution to debates about how we may study experience that are relevant to a wide range of disciplines.The book has three objectives. It offers an account of the way in which contemporary researchers are employing introspection methodologies; it argues for the importance of viewing introspective data as discourse, and illustrates this via discussion of research findings in four substantive chapters; and it outlines new directions for research and theorising on introspection and consciousness which will have implications for a range of psychological and social science disciplines.Robin Wooffitt is a Professor in the Department of Sociology at the University of York, and Director of the Anomalous Experiences Research Unit.Nicola Holt is a Lecturer in the Department of Psychology at the University of West of England at Bristol.
