Keywords:subtextual phenomenology, phenomenology, arts-based research, first-person research, transcendental phenomenology, intuitive research
AbstractThis paper presents a methodology for first‑person, intuitive research. It argues that it is possible to do rigorous research using subjective, first‑person data. The methodology, which I call Subtextual Phenomenology (sometimes shortened to Subphenomenology), provides a theoretical framework for such practice.
