The Natural Stance offers a wide ranging discussion of the technical, historical and philosophic aspects of Funakoshi's karate, with reference to Ari Anastasiadis, father of Shotokan in Canada. The author discusses the karate of Asai, Egami, Kanasawa Kase, Kobota, Nakayama Oshima, Oyama, Plee, Tokitsu, Yokota, and others in and around Shotokan. The Natural Stance discusses the 'natural' natural stance, Nakayama's hard-soft personal style, Mabuni's 5 principals, classic ipon kumite, the 20 Chinese precepts, the relation between tai chi and karate and much more. The Nature Stance explains how Funakoshi conceived karate as a community oriented form of personal and social development in the Okinawan tradition. It is the author's hope that The Natural Stance will help show the relevance of Funakoshi's karate to the needs of the present human condition. The Natural Stance offers incisive, holistic discussion of karate. As such, it ranks along side of Yokota's writing as one of the very few books which deals with the problems posed by the commercialization sportification and militarization of karate.

they in fact take this stance is certainly an empirical question. It is the stance in ...

Interest in the ethnomethodology and other phenomenological sociologies grew very rapidly among students and professionals in social science during the latter part of the twentieth century. The growth of this interest was handicapped by the lack of clear, systematic, and comprehensive treatments of their basic ideas and research findings. This book provides the first genuinely intelligible and reasonably systematic presentation of this perspective and contributed to the restructuring of empirical knowledge upon solid foundations. It remains important to those who would understood these areas of the social sciences and their potential to contribute to understanding of social life. These original essays, all of which share ideas about the scientific inadequacies of conventional sociologies and the fundamental importance of these new approaches, were contributed by many of the best young research workers and theorists of this approach in 1970, when the book was originally published. They are critical, theoretical, and empirical, and provide the first understandable presentation of this new mode of thought, its distinctions from old points of view, the range of problems that concern its practitioners, and the kinds of results that can be achieved. The book's clarity and systematic treatment of important research topics make it suitable for courses in sociological theory and research, the history of social thought, and related subjects. In addition, this volume can be used in courses specifically dealing with ethnomethodology, in graduate seminars dealing with these issues, and in academic work based on this orientation.

This book articulates a qualitative stance, drawing inspiration from the Danish psychologist Steinar Kvale's work. The qualitative stance involves a point of departure where the social world is described before theorized, understood before explained, and seen as concrete qualities rather than abstract quantities. It focuses on the cultural, everyday, and situated aspects of human thinking, learning, knowing, acting, and ways of understanding ourselves as persons, while at the same time striving to be scientific. International authorities on qualitative inquiry, education, psychology, and philosophy each develop different aspects of the qualitative stance by engaging with three distinct themes: The first centers around qualitative studies on learning, studied as a social phenomenon of human beings in changing social practices. The second theme is a critique of current educational practices and the postmodern consumer society, arrived at through careful descriptions of subjectivity and contemporary social relations. The third theme is about the development of new ways of thinking about qualitative inquiry.
