This paper wishes to address the nature of embodied understanding and how such considerations may clarify the purpose and path of phenomenologically-oriented qualitative research. It proceeds by developing some foundational thoughts about what is involved in the kind of understanding that is experientially and qualitatively relevant. As such, particular themes from Husserl, Heidegger and Gadamer are lifted out before gathering these themes to settle on the work of Eugene Gendlin. The paper concludes with a consideration of how such an emphasis on embodied understanding may re-interpret the tasks of phenomenologically-oriented qualitative research.
