Studying reflecting on becoming : some philosophical reference points

Dörfler, Viktor ; Stierand, Marc Benjamin ; Zizka, Laura (Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne, HES-SO // University of Applied Sciences Western Switzerland)

We developed a systemic process framework for reflecting on becoming that we currently employ to study graduate students’ reflecting on becoming. We describe the process of reflecting on becoming as a systemic process of continuous self-making and discuss some philosophical reference points by building on process philosophy. We conclude that, in order to achieve understanding in a study following process philosophy, researchers need to liberate themselves from the predominantly normative and positivist approaches and embrace the notion of research indirection so as to immerse themselves in the phenomena unfolding around them, attending to their sensual as well as mental experiences.
