Abstract: The aim of this study, which will be made during April and May 2005 at a high school located in a middle sized town in Sweden, is to explore how high school teachers constitute meaning in their work. The study was entered without a hypothesis constituted of presumpted relationships between variables, since the aim was to minimize preunderstanding and expectations on the data. The data was collected with an open question in written form and analyzed with the MCA, Menaing Constitution Analysis, method. The aim with this method is to transform the meaning or meanings of every meaning unit into an existential analysis revealing the subjective experiences of the Life-world and how the Life-world and phenomena detected within the Life-world become meaningful for the individual. The method used is stringent, by analysing word by word and clause by clause, to avoid presumptions about the meanings of the texts. An analysis is not based on classifications and coding of words and clauses, but on the way in which words relate to other words in the text and in which context they occur.
