Open peer commentary on the article “An Analysis Procedure for the Micro-Phenomenological Interview” by Camila Valenzuela-Moguillansky & Alejandra Vásquez-Rosati. Abstract: The authors describe how the structures of experience unfold in the course of micro-phenomenological analysis step by step by suggesting iterative interrogation. The proposed abstraction operations ultimately deserve more thorough discussion concerning the categorization process, specifically as to the potential necessity of integrating more hierarchical steps.
