Overview

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 also expand our understanding of phenomenological inquiry in fresh ways. The concept of "transformative phenomenology" springs from the long-term teaching and research experiences of David Allan Rehorick and Valerie Malhotra Bentz, the book's co-editors.
