Concept Analysis in Nursing: A New Approach (Routledge Advances in Research Methods) (Paperback)
In Concept Analysis in Nursing: A New Approach, Paley provides a critical analysis of the philosophical assumptions that underpin nursing's concept analysis methods. He argues, provocatively, that there are no such things as concepts, as traditionally conceived.
John Paley was formerly a senior lecturer at the University of Stirling, and is now a visiting fellow at the University of Worcester, UK. He writes on topics related to philosophy and health care, including research methods, evidence, complexity, spirituality, the post-Francis debate about compassion, and nursing ethics.
