Neither the vase nor the faces can be seen without one another: Remove one, the other disappears. Although they may depend upon one another, only one figure is experienced at one time. Extending such considerations to the case of more general human experience, the ideas expressed by Heidegger in his analysis of both Dasein and Existenz lead to the same conclusion: All being can only be experienced as a being-in-the-world in which my "being" is figure and "in-the-worid" is ground. There are no figures by themselves, and human experience is a patterned event constituted both by its central and contextual aspects.

The interpretive group functions something like a jury in a legal case, although juries probably do not have as much enjoyment in their deliberations as we do! Around the table at a typical Tuesday afternoon meeting of our group are 15 to 20 researchers from a variety of human science disciplines, gathered to collaboratively thematize an interview transcript. The diverse perspectives that members bring from their disciplinary training, gender role socialization, and cultural heritage are valued.
