The role of interpretation in caring science
University of Gävle, Department of Education and Psychology, Ämnesavdelningen för pedagogik.

Abstract [en]

This article focuses a hermeneutic approach on existential interpretation. The methodology is in focus of this article, while a caring science paradigm serves both as a background and as a theoretical framework - as a paradigmatic thinking using an abductive process. The result of the study indicates that the relatives´ experiences give substance to the drama of suffering and health as their situation metaphorically can be described: ’As if struck by a hurricane` but also: `As if resting in the eye of the hurricane` when a terra caritatis is created by the professional caregiver and the suffering can be alleviated.
