Fundamental Patterns of Knowing as depicted in Chinn, P. Knowledge Development in Nursing: Theory and Process 10th ed. St Louis: Elsevier. Used by permission.

Brief Summary of the work In this foundational article, Dr. Carper describes the results of her philosophic analysis of the conceptual and syntactical structure of nursing knowledge.

Her analysis was based on early nursing texts, and resulted in the identification of four patterns: empirics, ethics, esthetics and personal knowing. But it represents a personal conviction that there is a need to examine the kinds of knowing that provide the discipline with its particular perspectives and significance.

Understanding four fundamental patterns of knowing makes possible an increased awareness of the complexity and diversity of nursing. Her work provided a vision of nursing to break free from the constraints of empirics alone, and has advanced debate and discussion of the unique nature of nursing as a discipline and as a practice.
