Thinking qualitatively: methods of mind

By: Saldana, Johnny.
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: Los Angeles Sage 2015Description: xix, 215 p.ISBN: 9781483349831.Subject(s): Qualitative Research | Methodology - Social Sciences | Qualitative MethodsDDC classification: 001.42 Summary: Written in Johnny Saldaña's elegant and accessible style, Thinking Qualitatively: Methods of Mind boldly pursues the challenge of teaching students not just how to collect and analyze data, but how to actively think about them. Each chapter presents one “method of mind” (thinking analytically, realistically, symbolically, ethically, multidisciplinarily, artistically, summarily, interpretively, and narratively), together with applications, a vignette or story related to the thinking modality, points to remember, and exercises. Designed to help researchers “rise above the data,” the book explores how qualitative research designs, data collection, data analyses, and write-ups can be enriched through over 60 different lenses, filters, and angles on social life. Venturing into more evocative and multidimensional ways to examine the complex patterns of daily living, the book reveals how the researcher's mind thinks heuristically to transcend the descriptive and develop "highdeep" insights about the human condition. https://in.sagepub.com/en-in/sas/thinking-qualitatively/book242817
