This book expands the concept of the nature of science and provides a practical research alternative for those who work with people and organizations. Using literary criticism, philosophy, and history, as well as recent developments in the cognitive and social sciences, Narrative Knowing and the Human Sciences shows how to use research information organized by the narrative form--such information as clinical life histories, organizational case studies, biographic material, corporate cultural designs, and literary products. The relationship between the narrative format and classical and statistical and experimental designs is clarified and made explicit. Suggestions for doing research are given as well as criteria for judging the accuracy and quality of narrative research results.

To Fight and Learn

What was the promise of education that drew thousands of rural Eritreans to literacy classes in the midst of drought, famine, and war? This new book examines the remarkable testimony of Eritrea's fighter-teachers, the teenagers who spent years behind enemy lines teaching peasants and nomads to read and write during Eritrea's independence struggle. Using philosophical hermeneutics - the study of human understanding - as an analytical framework, Dr. Gottesman shows how the teachers became students of their students, learning the language and customs of rural people to create a "fusion of horizons." In this educational process, traditional Eritrean values and the progressive vision of the revolutionary movement found a locus for dialogue, exchange, and for change itself.

These original essays, written by prominent scholars, pay tribute to the work of William Bevan. In the course of his distinguished career, Bevan has exhibited an almost unique capacity to focus a clear-eyed, critical gaze on operating assumptions and actions - his own and those of others - and to initiate consequential, constructive steps forward, both in his writing and in his deeds. Substantive contributions in their own right, these essays convey the range and reach of Bevan's ideas and influence. The authors examine central themes and issues that Bevan has addressed in his own work, such as the social and human dimensions of science; the nature-nuture controversy; cognition and psychodynamics; applications for clinical, forensic, and organizational psychology; behavioral science and the political process; and the problem of specialization and fragmentation within the discipline. Including an afterword by Bevan as well as one of his key essays, the book reveals how Bevan has placed landmarks and posed challenges across the landscape of psychological thought. Traversing this diverse terrain will be well worth the reader's time, for established scholars as well as for students in psychology and in other social science disciplines.
