The subjective nature and differing approaches to hermeneutical interpretation makes it difficult to employ as a scientific tool. Rather than gaining knowledge that describes populations, individuals are examined at the granular level, providing a unique insight into their world and their perceptions of experiences (Polkinghorne, 2000). Although Browning argued that it was possible to empty one’s mind of prejudices and form objective conclusions, Heidegger asserted that it was the interpreter’s work to reveal hidden meanings (Sandage, Cook, Hill, Strawn, & Reimer, 2008). Indeed, the interpreter shapes meaning from a viewpoint of cultural, religious, and societal influences (Dilthey & Jameson, 1972) that are difficult to completely distance oneself from. Thus, the hermeneutical interpretation provides a rich understanding that unveils trends among groups of individuals that would not be revealed through quantitative research methods. These trends can then be used to structure quantitative studies to further the body of knowledge of populations.
