ABSTRACT

Recently, there has been a diverse range of phenomenological research in medicine. However, upon closer examination of the specific content of these studies, it is possible to identify cases in which it is unclear why they are considered to be phenomenological research. This is not only a problem that derives from researchers conducting phenomenological investigations; it also occurs because phenomenology itself takes various forms. Therefore, phenomenological research in medicine seems to require two approaches. On one hand, existing research needs to be refined with more accurate methodology, and on the other hand, the various forms of phenomenology that can be applied to the field of medicine need to be continuously explored. To do this, first, phenomenology needs to be classified according to its types, and then, the ways in which this classified phenomenology can be applied to medical research need to be explored. This paper classifies French phenomenology into the Merleau-Pontyenne and non-Merleau-Pontyenne families according to Sebbah’s classification method. It explains thr characteristics and research tendencies of each family, and explores how each phenomenology can contribute to medical discussions and its continuous involvement in the field.
