Abstract [en]

With a common ground in the epistemology of lifeworld phenomenological and hermeneutical approaches, we explored the possibility of understanding existential phenomena in different stages of human life, such as children’s illness and experience of medical procedures, childbirth and breastfeeding and old age. Through various forms of lifeworld theory-based data collection methods, examples of how lifeworld stories can emerge are presented. There is humbleness and an understanding that there may be more to be understood than what may be directly apparent in the story of a patient. This gives rise to the fact that analyses may sometimes need to be further developed with the aid of philosophical examination and interpretation, which open up opportunities to understand what is unspoken and hidden in stories. Such examination and interpretation also make it possible to deepen what is said. The philosophy of existence can help researchers get hold of what does not appear immediately and what is hinted at but not stated directly, and uncover hidden meanings in stories. Such in-depth understanding may have significance for developing caring practice by potentially bridging the dualistic view of human beings as body and soul. Through a lifeworld theory-based research approach, caring that takes into account existential dimensions in people's lives in relation to caring can be developed and stimulated.
