Week 4 Forum 
Phenomenology & Ethnomethodology
View Full Description
Forum 4 – Choose one Question:
Question 1: Phenomenology
Please explain how Alfred Schutz uses the concepts of “subjective” and “objective” in describing the experience people have of themselves and others. Next, give a specific example of how one type of experience may have a  “subjective” meaning that runs counter to an “objective” meaning.  (hint: think about an experience a person has not had that he/she has expectations about, but has an actual experience that is different from what they expect.)
Question 2: Ethnomethodology
Describe the basic field of Ethnomethodolgy – what are the main concerns of this perspective and how do they differ from traditional sociological concerns? How do Garfinkle’s Breaching Experiments relate to the main concern of Ethnomethodology?

Instructions for all Forums:
Each week, learners will post one initial post per week.  This post must demonstrate comprehension of the course materials, the ability to apply that knowledge in the real world.  Learners will engage with the instructor and peers throughout the learning week.  To motivate engaged discussion, posts are expected to be on time with regular interaction throughout the week.  All posts should demonstrate college level writing skills. To promote vibrant discussion as we would in a face to face classroom, formatted citations and references are not required.  Quotes should not be used at all, or used sparingly.  If you quote a source quotation marks should be used and an APA formatted citation and reference provided.
