Building Ways of Thinking: The Relationship between Constructs and Concepts
This paper relates to the methodological approach adopted in research by Redpath (2004) wherein university graduate rural women of New South Wales, Australia, were participants in a qualitative-humanistic study involving the interpretation of their perceptions of their existence in that environment. One of the major elements of the methodology to be examined here focuses on exploring the relationship between Constructs and Concepts as a basis for explication of perceptions to build ways of thinking in human society.
