Sample text

A good number of the world舗s scientists, across many fields of research, agree with the philosophical tenet that an observer-independent view of the world is an unachievable goal. 舡 Hawking and Mlodinow (2010) adopt a position they call model-dependent realism. In their words, Š Model-dependent realism is based on the idea that our brains interpret the input from our sensory organs by making a model of the world. When such a model is successful at explaining events, we tend to attribute to it, and to the elements and concepts that constitute it, the quality of reality or absolute truth (p.

Garfinkel 1967, 2002), which is the study of the ways in which people produce recognizable social orders and processes. Thus, ethnomethodology and its subgenres view text as a window into broader social and cultural processes. 舡 Analysis can be quite detailed, looking at the specific structure of discourse and interaction between two or more speakers to understand how shared meanings are socially constructed. Both approaches study (usually recorded) 舠naturally舡 occurring language, as opposed to text resulting from more 舠artificial舡 contexts, such as formal interviews, and aim to extract social and cultural meanings and phenomena from the discourse studied.

One exception to this might be conversation between individuals in the context of group interviews and focus groups (as opposed to responses aimed at the interviewer), but purists would still argue that both the environment and group dynamic in a focus group context are artificial, thereby, contaminating the purity of the discourse. Existing documents are an excellent source of public discourse for DA or CA. In terms of field research, participant observation is ideal for capturing 舠naturally occurring舡 discourse, as Hutchins did in the Trobriands.
