The theoretical concept of 'everyday life' is ambiguous. Different theoretic approaches offer different epistemological comprehensions of the concept. These have implications for research in everyday life. For the purpose of clarifying the analytical perspective in a Ph.D.-project carried out in and around a hospital ward in Dr. Ingrids Hospital in Nuuk, the concept of everyday life is discussed from two different angles: a sociological-phaenomenological approach and an approach to everyday life based on a critical psychological theory of practice. Questions of subjectivity, practice and social change are put on the agenda in order to discuss how change can be brought about through humanistic health research.
