|Title:||Life History and Understanding Personal Meanings|
|Authors:||Little, Kenneth William|
|Advisor:||Preston, Richard J.|
|Abstract:||<p>This thesis is an attempt to examine why it. is important to study an individual in his culture. A hermeneutical perspective then is offered as an example of one way in which an ethnographer may collect life history materials from a native person. Next, this hermeneutical perspective is developed as an interpretive scheme, the criteria of its uses are explored and then applied in a reinterpretation of Radin's presentation of Crashing Thunder, a Winnebago Indian. Consideration is given to how he used the life history form.</p>|
