Abstract:
During an initial project on linking concepts, a related concept (uncertainty) arose. In subsequent studies, the concept was analyzed using the techniques describe by Morse and colleagues and then advanced through concept refinement using the literature as data. It became apparent that the scientific conceptualization was highly probabilistic and failed to capture the nature of experience of uncertainty reflected in experiential accounts. Therefore, a phenomenological study was undertaken to explore the nature of the experience of uncertainty. In order to be useful for progressive advancement of the concept of uncertainty, the phenomenological findings were disentangled to isolate attributes of uncertainty from other aspects of the experience. This process prepared the way for concept correction through which the attributes discovered in phenomenology were integrated with the scientific definition.
