A Phenomenological Critique of Ethnomethodology

To clarify the philosophical grounds of ethnomethodology, a variety of sociology which emerged in the early 1960s. The focal issues which the proposed study will address are: (l) the utility and probable fruitfulness of phenomenology for the development of a humanistic, philosophically well-grounded sociology; (2) the specific relevance of some of Edmund Husserl's and Alfred Schutz's central ideas to sociological undertaking; (3)the relative failure of ethnomethodologists to develop a phenomenologically informed sociology; and, (4) the implications of that failure in terms of the circumscription of crucial possibilities for cross-disciplinary scholarship and humanistic advanced in the sociological sphere.
