Abduction: The Logic of Discovery of Grounded Theory
Keywords:grounded theory methodology, Strauss, abduction, deduction, induction, methodology, Peirce, qualitative social research, construction of knowledge
AbstractThis essay is a contribution to the question whether grounded theory methodology (in the variant of STRAUSS & CORBIN) contains an abductive research logic as developed in the work of Charles Sanders PEIRCE. After going through the works of STRAUSS and CORBIN I answer the question with a resounding yes. But it does not only contain the logic of abductive reasoning but also that of qualitative induction.
