Vermersch P. (2016) Notes on the Coupling between the Observer and the Observed in Psycho-Phenomenology. Constructivist Foundations 11(2): 391–393. Fulltext at
Open peer commentary on the article “Going Beyond Theory: Constructivism and Empirical Phenomenology” by Urban Kordeš. Upshot: This commentary supports the view of the target article concerning the interest of taking into account the coupling between the observing scientist and the subject, and applying it in particular to the study of subjective experience. I propose to identify three aspects of coupling: (a) the technical conditions of coupling between the observer and the subject being observed in order to guide introspection; (b) the requirements for coupling between the scientist and social transmission during the experiential learning of non-inductive aid to introspection; (c) the essential coupling of the reflexive application of the tool to itself, i.e., the explicitation of explicitation.
