The discussion about methods is about the question to what extent the philosophical practitioner is prescribing and determining the guest's own 'road'. Does the practitioner set a goal for the guest, and a determined route for the guest? If so, the guest has to follow the predetermined road.
Another possibility is, however, that there is no such predetermined road, but that the guest and the philosophical host set out for wandering in the guest's life stories, i.e. experiences. Together they find out the guest's way, explore what they stumble upon, reflect on the findings and on the trail that is coming about. Here, the road is a track of the guest's search, not the predetermined railway lines towards a preconceived solution. Here, the method is being invented while making one's way.
