Hermeneutic Process in Men’s Stories of Eating Disorder.

Hermeneutic Process (opens as a PDF)

Today I’m posting some work I did during my research time last week to begin to attempt to find a representation of the interpretive process I’m working with.

Where the duo-coloured arrows move between two interpretive stages this is where some of my thinking has been taking place, in response to my supervisor who wanted to know how my highly personal and emotive response (red) impacted on the stage where I was trying to engage in an empathic retelling (yellow). I’ll journal some of the highlights of that thinking here soon. Most of the deliberation over the organic, iterative nature of interpretation lies between the stages and between the participants as they influence one another or collide both metaphorically and literally.
