Labyrinth Pathways. First Edition

Rhodes, J. W.

Abstract: This article sets a context for the emerging field of labyrinth research. It suggests a set of basic assumptions to guide labyrinth research. These basic assumptions relate to authenticity of the research to the labyrinth and labyrinth experiences, intrusiveness of research on subjects’ labyrinth experiences, and interpretation of research results, particularly with regard to predictability and generalizability. The article also puts forth a seven-stage Framework for Labyrinth Research. It is suggested that the Framework could serve as: 

  • a guide as the different types of labyrinth research that have already been done are identified and categorized;
  • an aid as types of labyrinth research that are needed are identified and appropriate research designs and methodologies are developed; and
  • a catalyst for identifying types of labyrinth research that could be done.

The article concludes with a set of considerations to serve as a catalyst for further discussion and future articles.
