Existential phenomenology, with its emphasis on deeply connecting with and understanding humans, has much to offer nursing at this particular juncture in our history. In this methodological symposium, we present a new approach to phenomenological nursing research, based in Merleau-Ponty, which differs in several respects from Heideggerian and Husserlian traditions. This paper, the first of four in the symposium, provides the philosophical underpinnings and procedural explanations necessary to understand the basic elements of the new approach to phenomenological nursing research. The basic elements of our approach include its (a) grounding in the philosophy of Merleau-Ponty, (b) stance on bracketing, (c) part-to-whole dialectic in analyzing data, (d) use of an interpretive group in developing the thematic structure, and (e) issues of rigor, validity, and generalizability. According to Merleau-Ponty, perceived “things” are always perceived as having a certain figure (or form) against a background. This presentation reviews the four existential grounds (body, time, other people, and world) that contextualize human experience, highlighting findings of studies that elucidate the first-person meaning of each. Following this paper, three studies that serve as exemplars of our approach will be presented. To conclude the symposium, we will invite questions and dialogue.
