Narrative Knowing and the Human Sciences
State University of New York Press, Apr 7, 1988 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 232 pages
This book expands the concept of the nature of science and provides a practical research alternative for those who work with people and organizations.
Using literary criticism, philosophy, and history, as well as recent developments in the cognitive and social sciences, Narrative Knowing and the Human Sciences shows how to use research information organized by the narrative form—such information as clinical life histories, organizational case studies, biographic material, corporate cultural designs, and literary products. The relationship between the narrative format and classical and statistical and experimental designs is clarified and made explicit. Suggestions for doing research are given as well as criteria for judging the accuracy and quality of narrative research results.
