Heuristic Inquiry: Researching Human Experience Holistically.


Heuristic Inquiry: Researching Human Experience Holistically

Nevine Sultan



291 pages



Focusing on exploring human experience from a holistic perspective, Sultan presents heuristic inquiry as a unique phenomenologically aligned, experiential, creative, and reflexive-relational approach to qualitative research that is also rigorous and evidence-based. One of the distinguishing features of this methodology, she says, is to treat participants as active co-researchers and partners in an exploratory process of inquiry, rather than passive objects of research. Among her topics are locating heuristic inquiry within contemporary qualitative research, heuristic processes and phases, heuristic research design, evaluating the research: a collaborative process, and ethics of heuristic research.
