The Value and Way of Researching Personal Involvement in the Individuation Process

In this paper I discuss methodology to research individual involvement in the individuation process. First, I delineate my basic assumptions as a “bracketing of being.” Next I discuss various research methodologies, all which seem to be appropriate. These include research as a qualitative phenomenological study, as a hermeneutic study, as a dramatic aesthetic study, as a religious way of knowing, as an ethical study and as a depth psychological study.
