Naturalistic studies, as described in this chapter, are closely modeled on the approach taken by anthropologists entering a target culture. The observer attempts to obtain a dual perspective on the culture: he looks at it through the eyes of individuals belonging to the culture and also through his own eyes. This dual perspective provides him with a bifocal experience from the inside as well as from the outside, and the contrasts between the two furnish yet a third set of data.
