Wissenschaftlicher Aufsatz aus dem Jahr 2010 im Fachbereich Germanistik - Literaturgeschichte, Epochen, Note: "-," Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Universitat Hannover (Philosophische Fakultat), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In den Kapiteln 4 und 5 des Romans "Irrungen, Wirrungen" zeigt sich schon deutlich, dass Bothos und Lenes Denken und Handeln, ihr Gefuhlsleben, ihre Sprechweise und damit auch ihr Verhaltnis zueinander durch ihre soziale Herkunft gepragt und bestimmt werden. Ihre aufrichtige Zuneigung, die bei beiden gleich stark zu sein scheint, wird daher immer wieder gestort und durchbrochen. Unter diesem Aspekt betrachtet, kommt diesen beiden Kapiteln des Buches daher eine Schlusselfunktion zu. Sie konnen auch als Vorwegnahme bzw. Vorausdeutung spaterer Entwicklungen im Verhaltnis von Lene und Botho aufgefasst werden, wie zwei Steine eines Mosaiks, die schon viele Komponenten des Ganzen enthalten, das sich im Laufe der Zeit vervollstandigt und klarere Konturen bekommt. Dies an konkreten Beispielen aufzuzeigen, ist ein Anliegen dieser Arbeit. In Kapitel 4 tritt Botho zum ersten Mal als handelnde Figur in Lenes hauslicher Umgebung auf. Er verhalt sich nicht - wie man erwarten konnte - als hoflicher Besucher, der sich mit der fur ihn neuen kleinburgerlichen Welt vertraut machen will, sondern greift aktiv gestaltend und bestimmend in den Verlauf der Handlung ein. Im darauffolgenden Kapitel 5 bekommt der Leser erste Eindrucke davon, wie sich Botho und Lene verhalten, wenn sie allein sind. Auch hier scheint Botho derjenige zu sein, der die Thematik und die Richtung des Gesprach entscheidend bestimmt. Diese scheinbare Dominanz halt jedoch keiner kritischen Uberprufung stand. Bei genauerem Hinsehen erweist sich seine Uberlegenheit" als Anmassung, als blosser Schein und reine Rhetorik, die von Lene erkannt, richtig gedeutet und wiederholt zuruckgewiesen wird. Lene bezieht in ihren Ausserungen klare Positionen und erweist sich ihm zumindest ebenburtig, in den entscheidend"

Der Klassiker über den qualitativen Forschungsansatz der "Grounded Theory", geschrieben von den Entwicklern dieser Methode "Obwohl unser Buch sich in erster Linie an Soziologen richtet, glauben wir, dass es jedem nutzen kann, der daran interessiert ist, soziale Phänomene zu untersuchen politischer, pädagogischer, wirtschaftlicher, industrieller oder welcher Art auch immer." In der Tat ist "Grounded Theory" quer durch die wissenschaftlichen Disziplinen zum Standardbegriff der qualitativen Sozialforschung ge - worden. Die inzwischen zum Klassiker avancierte Arbeit von Glaser und Strauss eröffnet eine lehrbare und auch lernbare Forschungsstrategie. Das Konzept bietet eine Antwort auf das Problem, die oft schmerzlich empfundene Lücke zwischen empirischer Forschung und Theorie zu schliessen.

This volume sets the stage for understanding the evolution and importance of nursing science in the field by providing a brief historical overview of the tobacco epidemic and emerging science, describing changing trends in tobacco use, reviewing health risks of smoking and benefits of quitting, reviewing concepts in nicotine addiction and evidence-based recommendations for tobacco dependence treatment. Also highlighted are nursing science efforts and leadership in addressing two barriers to mounting programs of nursing research in tobacco control: the lack of nursing education and training in tobacco control and the limited research funding and mentorship. Finally, the contributors to this volume address the issue of smoking in the profession as it influences nurses' health, interventions with patients, and, potentially, scholarship efforts.

"Phenomenology recognizes that...the work of a nurse is the work of an embodied subject, a feeling and knowing and experiencing person in relationship to another embodied subject, the patient, who is another feeling and knowing and experiencing person. Phenomenology in nursing will be concerned with the subjective, living person in her or his lived body in the experience of health and illnessóboth nurse and patient. As such, it could have radical effects." Jeffrey McCurry, Director, Simon Silverman Phenomenology Center Duquesne University, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (From the Foreword) Phenomenology is a descriptive approach to obtaining knowledge that focuses on capturing the essence of human experience through the point of view of a distinct individual. As a form of qualitative nursing research, it provides a perspective apart from that of empirical sciences, which see the human mind and body as physical or material objects open to study only through empirical science and treatable only through physical remedies. This "how-to" book describes the foundations of phenomenology and the specifics of how to conduct nursing research using phenomenological designs. It is part of an innovative series for novice researchers and specialists alike focusing on state-of-the-art methodologies from a nursing perspective. Authored by international scholars of qualitative nursing research, the book elucidates the theoretical rationale for using phenomenology, describes its components, and delineates a plan to conduct studies that includes appropriate methods, ethical considerations, and potential pitfalls. The book provides guidance for writing a research proposal that justifies the importance or potential impact of a study and describes how to conduct interviews that best elicit information. It focuses on achieving rigor in phenomenological research in regard to accuracy and replicability, and discusses different types of data collection and analysis and when to use them. Appendices include a list of qualitative research journals, textbooks, and other resources for more in-depth study. Chapters provide helpful advice on interviewing and data analysis. The book will be of value to novice and experienced nurse researchers, graduate teachers and students, in-service educators and students, and nursing research staff at health care institutions. Key Features: Comprises the first "how-to" guide to conducting qualitative phenomenological research from a nursing perspective Presents a comprehensive plan for conducting studies and appropriate measures, ethical considerations, and potential challenges Guides readers in construction of a research proposal that justifies the importance or potential impact of a study Provides examples of interviews that best elicit information

This is a concise, step-by-step guide to conducting qualitative nursing research using various forms of data analysis. It is part of a unique series of books devoted to seven different qualitative designs and methods in nursing, written for both novice researchers and specialists seeking to develop or expand their competency. This practical resource encompasses such methodologies as content analysis, a means of organizing and interpreting data to elicit themes and concepts; discourse analysis, used to analyze language to understand social or historical context; narrative analysis, in which the researcher seeks to understand human experience through participant stories; and focus groups and case studies, used to understand the consensus of a group or the experience of an individual and his or her reaction to a difficult situation such as disease or trauma. Written by a noted qualitative research scholar and contributing experts, the book describes the philosophical basis for conducting research using data analysis and delivers an in-depth plan for applying its methodologies to a particular study, including appropriate methods, ethical considerations, and potential challenges. It presents practical strategies for solving problems related to the conduct of research using the various forms of data analysis and presents a rich array of case examples from published nursing research. These include author analyses to support readers in decision making regarding their own projects. The book embraces such varied topics as data security in qualitative research, the image of nursing in science fiction literature, the trajectory of research in several nursing studies throughout Africa, and many others. Focused on the needs of both novice researchers and specialists, it will be of value to health institution research divisions, in-service educators and students, and graduate nursing educators and students. Key Features: Explains how to conduct nursing research using content analysis, discourse analysis, narrative analysis, and focus groups and case studies Presents state-of-the-art designs and protocols Focuses on solving practical problems related to the conduct of research Features rich nursing exemplars in a variety of health/mental health clinical settings in the United States and internationally
