I need to get my head around whether one attempts Husserl's bracketing in IPA. The literature seems inconclusive. I think if I can write down in one place all of the literature I've found relating to the topic, then I can come to some sort of conclusion.
It does not seem clear in Smith et al.'s book on IPA where they sit. They do talk about bracketing but it appears to be a more limited way than espoused by Husserl.
I'll leave the rest of the thinking to another day. I know where my thoughts currently stand. We'll see how the literature guides me.
