Analytical strategies of situated generalization in psychological research

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review

Abstract

The chapter emphasizes the key role of generalization in scientific work and takes a critical look at major forms of scientific generalization in psychological research. Based on a presentation of fundamental characteristics of psychological processes including its subjective, contextual, and transient dimensions, it argues for a notion of psychological generalization which does not abstract away human subjectivity and difference but understands it as different manifestations of the same relationship. Based on such an embodied, subjectivity-in-everyday-life approach to the production of knowledge the chapter asks how generalization in psychological research practice can be done and presents a variety of basic analytical strategies of situated generalization including Zooming In to Zoom Out and Zooming Out to Zoom In.
