Interpreting experience - California Sage Publication 1995 - xiii, 262p. - The Narrative Study of Lives .

How does context shape biography? How do language and relationships affect the development of people's work lives? An international group of scholars from diverse disciplines address these and other issues in the latest volume of "The Narrative Study of Lives." They explore what it means to take narrative seriously and how an empathic stance in narrative research opens out on the dialogic self. The contributors also consider questions of how participants make meaning out of their experience in the framework of available interpretive horizons. In addition, there are sections that use narrative approaches to develop a deeper understanding of loneliness and the "coming out" process in homosexuality. This volume examines the many ways in which people interpret their experience and explores conceptual avenues to make use of these understandings in the analysis of human life.
