Frequently Asked Questions.
Quantitative Phenomenology is a scientific method that utilizes the lexical hypothesis and language corpora to calculate the degree of importance of certain themes with respect to a given topic, question, or stimulus. We provide detailed information about performing a Quantitative Phenomenology with Raven’s Eye in the Methods section of our Technicals, and a summary of the development of Quantitative Phenomenology in the Methodological Foundations section of our Technicals.
Raven’s Eye is compatible with most contemporary devices, and versions of the major browsers and operating systems.
Known compatibility issues:
Occasionally, users report difficulties making purchases and downloading files with Safari. Therefore, we recommend utilizing a different browser, such as Chrome, Firefox, or Internet Explorer.
Raven’s Eye does not offer a free trial version at this time.
Raven’s Eye utilizes very large datasets (our English language corpus alone consists of 4.8 billion words), and multiple high speed supercomputing processes to produce its results. It therefore by far exceeds the capacity of most personal computers (as well as those software programs that can fit on them). So, we do not offer personal copies of the software itself.
But don't worry, our software is accessible online across nearly all contemporary Internet-connected phones, tablets, and desktop computers. While connected to the Internet, you can always download your results to your personal device for offline inspection and further manipulation with your device's word-processing or presentation software.
