Description

In recent years, scholars and researchers have moved away from quantitative methods of research and toward qualitative methods, which emphasize questions of meaning and interpretation. Gubrium and Holstein offer a new theoretical view which reintegrates the traditional emphasis on the "how" and "what" of social life with a contemporary understanding of the "why". The authors demonstrate how their approach may be put into practice in research on family, aging, deviance and social problems, and organizations and institutions.show more

Review quote

Gubrium and Holstein have done us a service in revisiting and updating hte ontological and epistemological assumptions of varieties of qualitative research...will be valuable for postgraduate courses in the philosophy of social research and qualitative methods. A book which attempts to bring qualitative methods into contemporary debates about epistemology is to be recommended, and it offers considerable material to enable the reader to evaluate their own form of qualitative research practice. - Barbara Harrison. Sociology. Vol 32. 1998.show more
