Seminar paper from the yr 2007 within the topic Sociology - method and techniques, grade: 1,3, collage of Tubingen, language: English, summary: I.Introduction

Since the 1st ebook of Grounded thought (in the subsequent GT) by way of Anselm L. Strauss and Barney Glaser in 1967, loads of scientists and researchers have written approximately, utilized and reformulated this theory-building procedure. what's missing in lots of of those works is GT’s acknowledgement as a strategy. Many researchers have utilized the tactics proposed through Strauss and Glaser, yet they don't appear to be conscious of the epistemological implications caused by using the GT technique. As Strauss with his co-author Juliet Corbin said:

“In this booklet (Basics of Qualitative learn, BD/CL), we're supplying greater than a collection of approaches. we're providing a manner of considering and of viewing the realm which can enhance the learn of these who decide to use this methodology.” (Strauss/ Corbin 1998: 4)

Kathy Charmaz seems to be an exception during this canon, on account that she is not just puzzling over the philosophy of data at the back of GT, but in addition trying to renew the epistemological groundings of GT within the box of constructivism. This leads us to the most query of this thesis: is that this attainable? Can the GT technique be abstracted from the epistemology status at the back of it and be based on a brand new one? An affirmative solution might suggest that GT from the start was once easily a mode and will be utilized by all researchers, regardless of which culture they belong to or which theoretical procedure they pursue. Or as Charmaz positioned it: “…researchers ranging from different vantage issues – feminist, Marxist, phenomenologist – can use grounded thought concepts for his or her empirical studies.” (Charmaz 2000: 511) The negation of the query might suggest that Charmaz’s constructivist method can't declare the time period Grounded thought for itself.
The following paper will research this query in better element on the way to discover a tentative resolution. beginning with a quick description of the improvement, tactics and epistemological foundations of GT , the second one half will concentrate on Charmaz’s arguments introduced ahead opposed to the variation of Strauss and her constructivist model of GT. on the finish of this part, her propsals can be evaluated by way of innovation. In a 3rd part her arguments opposed to Strauss & Corbin could be tested concerning their warrant and validity. ultimately, the realization will draw jointly all arguments to resolve the query concerning the exchangeability of the epistemological fundament of GT.
