As moderators of the FQS' debate on the standards of qualitative social research, we remind the participants and the readers of the vastness and the variety of criteria involved in the discourse of philosophy of science. We present impressions on the change of these criteria in recent discussions. We urge the participants of this debate to become aware of the systematic and historical character of postulated criteria. URN: urn:nbn:de:0114-fqs0103245
