Thoughts on the Return of Yesterday's War
Keywords:Hermeneutics, hermeneutic research, qualitative research, interpretive research, neo-conservativism, research funding, dominant cultures
Recent American events have tended to energize me and remind me of a wider swath about our circumstances. We find ourselves fighting this issue on methodological, epistemological, and ontological grounds, but it is also a matter of power and market driven distortions, of issues of gender and how marginalization works to blame precisely those it then victimizes, and on and on. In this paper, I take up some of these ideas.
