by Tokumaru, Satoko (2011). Translated into English by Mariyo Kida.

SECTION1:Applying TAE to Qualitative Research

Chapter 1:Qualitative Research and TAE
 1. Qualitative Research and Creation of Meaning
  1.1 Qualitative research is interested in meaning
  1.2 Qualitative research is a field of research to create meaning
  1.3 Qualitative Research and Sensitizing Concepts
 2. Why TAE?
  2.1 What is TAE?
  2.2 Define a Felt Sense clearly
  2.3 Steps are specific to visualize the process
  2.4 Clearly linked to the underlying theory
  2.5 What does TAE pursue?
  2.6 TAE principles
  2.7 Compatible with other methods
 3. What TAE Can Do
  3.1 To create meaning systematically from experience
  3.2 Particulars participate in universals (IOFI)
  3.3 Widely applicable from daily review to research
  3.4 Applicable to the type of data that are mediated via felt sense
   3.4.1 When working on one’s own experience as the subject matter
   3.4.2 When working on another person’s experience
Chapter 2:TAE and Gendlin’s Theory of the Creation of Meaning
 1. Moving back and forth between entitizing and universalization
 2. Experiencing is always more complex than form
 3. Functions of a felt sense
  3.1 A felt sense calls forth symbols
  3.2 A felt sense is progressing with selected symbols
  3.3 Dealing with symbols operationally, separately from the felt sense
Chapter 3:Applying TAE to Qualitative Research
 1. Overview of TAE STEPS
  14 STEPS
  Characteristics of the Three Parts
 2. Before starting Part 1
 3. Part 1
  Step 1:Let a felt sense form
  Step 2:Find what is more than logical in your felt sense
  Step 3:Notice that you don’t mean the standard definitions of the words
  Step 4:Write a sentence or fresh phrase to say what you wanted each keyword to mean
  Step 5:Expand what you wanted each word to mean by writing fresh, linguistically unusual sentences
 4. Part 1:Summary
 5. Before Starting Part 2
 6. Part 2
  Step 6:Collect Facets
  Step 7:Allow the facets to contribute detailed structure
  Step 8:Cross the facets
  Step 9:Write freely
 7. Part 2:Summary
 8. Before Starting Part 3
 9. Part 3
  Step 10:Choose terms and link them
  Step 11:Inquire into the inherent relations between the terms
  Step 12:Choose permanent terms and interlock them
  Step 13:Apply your theory outside your field
  Step 14:Expand and apply your theory in your field

   SECTION2:Gendlin’s Theory on the Creation of Meaning in the Background of TAE

Chapter 5:Gendlin’s Theory of the Creation of Meaning
 1. The body is a concrete mass in process
  1.1 B-EN process
  1.2 Occurring into implying
  1.3 Implicit ‘type-a’ and first universals
 2. Direct reference is minimal symbolization
  2.1 Human beings can perceive experiencing through direct reference
  2.2 Direct Reference
  2.3 Felt Sense
  2.4 Second universals (1) “as such”
 3. Patterns are the most primitive symbols
  3.1 Humans have the capacity to find patterns
  3.2 Doubling
  3.3 Separation of patterns
  3.4 Patterns function by means of implicit intricacy
  3.5 Second Universals:Pattern (2)
 4. Language develops from Patterns
  4.1 Mesh
  4.2 Beginning of symbols
  4.3 Three types of carrying-forward
  4.4 Cluster and lateral crossing
  4.5 Collective crossing and category
  4.6 Collective crossing by using words
  4.7 Third universals
 5. Seven modes of functional relationship between felt sense and symbol
  5.1 Direct Reference
  5.2 Recognition, and Explication
  5.3 Metaphor, and Comprehension
  5.4 Relevance, and Circumlocution
  5.5 The act of having a conversation
 6. Creative Regress, and Direct Referent
  6.1 Creative Regress
  6.2 Versioning
  6.3 Monad-Diafil Development
 7. Responsive Order
