Miscellaneous Information:

Amedeo P. Giorgi received his PhD in experimental psychology from Fordham University in 1958. After working as a human factors consultant to government and industry for several years, Amedeo moved into an academic career, beginning at Manhattan College, followed by Duquesne University, and later the University of Quebec at Montreal. Currently, he is a Professor at Saybrook University in San Francisco with which he has been associated since 1986

Professor Giorgi, being critical of mainstream psychology, began to seek alternative approaches to the study of psychological material. In so doing, he studied philosophical phenomenology, especially the work of Edmund Husserl and Maurice Merleau-Ponty, and adopted that approach as a framework for developing an alternative approach to the understanding of psychological problems. Amedeo's speciality is in the area of psychological research practices, especially qualitative approaches. He is the developer of a phenomenological method based on the thought of Husserl and Merleau-Ponty.

Professor Giorgi has directed over 100 dissertations that have used the method on a wide variety of psychological problems, and he has published over 100 articles on the phenomenological approach to psychology. Amedeo has lectured on phenomenological psychology in Europe, Asia, Latin America, Australia and South Africa. He is the founder and original editor (for over 25 years) of the Journal of Phenomenological Psychology and is author of the classic text 'Psychology as a Human Science: A Phenomenologically based Approach' (New York: Harper & Row, 1970). In addition, Amedeo has published, inter alia, 'Phenomenology and Psychological Research' (Pittsburgh, PA: Duquesne University Press, 1985 - Editor) and 'Qualitative Research in Psychology' (Pittsburgh, PA: Duquesne University Press, 1986 - Editor, with P. D. Ashworth & A. J. J. de Koning).

Professor Giorgi is an advisor to the journal and its Editorial Board.
