This case examines the utility of theocentric phenomenology in investigating social issues. It compares theocentric phenomenology with the scientific method and then applies theocentric phenomenology to a study about the consequences of taking life. This methodology, like social science, is based on empiricism. However, readers will find that theocentric phenomenology will get them thinking outside the “social science box.” The intimacy of the methodology will empower them to perhaps view differently the world and its problems. I am currently using this methodology in two projects. One project is an exploration of the “sense of community” in an inner-city neighborhood in Jackson, MS. The second project explores the human value of two men on death row.
