I am very thrilled announce our book launch of: Doing Hermeneutic Phenomenological Research: A practical guide (2020, Sage Publication Inc., ISBN 978-1-5264-8573-1). This book evolved from a team (myself included) of scholars (Lesley Dibley, Suzanne Dickerson, Mel Duffy and Roxanne Vandermause) who participate in the emerging scholarship of the Advanced Hermeneutical Institute that has occurred over the past three decades. The goal of this research is to gain an understand of the meaning of human experience. To discuss philosophical underpinnings of the research, this group of national and international scholars gather annually, bringing in current philosophers to examine the readings from Heidegger and Gadamer, among others. Doctoral students and faculty also attend to engage in the scholarly discussion.  This book is a guide for scholars of any discipline to understand the philosophical way of thinking in designing and conducting Hermeneutic Phenomenological Research. A video of the book launch is below.
