Guest Editorial: Evidence-Based Approaches and Practises in Phenomenology: Evidence and Pedagogy

Indo-Pacific Journal of Phenomenology 12 (sup2):1-4 (2012)
  Copy   BIBTEX


In bringing together this special edition we wish to contribute to a conversation concerning the meaning of 'evidence-based practice'. We are nurses and phenomenological researchers interested in lifeworld approaches and in the many ways of knowing that are relevant to everyday caring practice. In the context of the ever-increasing specialisation of knowledge, we wish to widen the embrace of current notions of evidence and point to ways of knowing that are inclusive of the 'head, hand and heart'. This wider embrace of evidence does not excessively exclude kinds of knowledge that include the aesthetic, empathic, embodied and relational dimensions of understanding.
