I've located a research study that uses a phenomenological perspective. I need some suggestions on how to analyze the ontological, axiological, and epistemological assumptions that the author of the article makes. How is this manifested in the research questions, variables, instruments, data collection, and data collection procedures? I need help with some specific examples. Thanks for your consideration.

Hi There,
In this particular task, you are asking for help in putting together a 500-word discussion that looks into the philosophical assumptions of a study. I suggest using this simple outline:

You don't have to cover every aspect; you just have to exemplify the areas you have chosen to discuss as clearly as possible. You can use the listed resources to further explore the topic. Just let me know via the feedback section if you need further clarification. All the best with your studies.
