Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2000 im Fachbereich Soziologie - Methodologie und Methoden, Note: 1-2, Georg-August-Universität Göttingen (Soziologisches Seminar), Veranstaltung: Geschichte, Theorie und Ergebnisse qualitativer Sozialforschung (I), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Grounded Theory als methodologisches Rahmenkonzept hat sich inzwischen in der Qualitativen Sozialwissenschaftlichen Forschung durchgesetzt. Sie kann insbesondere dann nutzbringend angewendet werden, wenn sich der Forscher/die Forscherin ohne ausformulierte Hypothesen in das Forschungsfeld begibt und dort neue soziale Phänomene entdecken will, die sich mit bereits vorhandenen Theorien nicht erklären lassen. Der Forschungsstil der Grounded Theory ermöglicht es, Theorien mittlerer Reichweite, also empirisch fundierte Theorien mit praktischem Nutzen zu ‚entdecken′. Im folgenden soll zuerst eine Einführung in die historisch Entwicklung und die theoretische Einbettung, in der Anselm Strauss und Barney Glaser die Grounded Theory entwickelt haben, gegeben werden. In einem nächsten Schritt soll das Verfahren beschrieben werden. Abschließend werde ich diesen Forschungsstil kritisch diskutieren, insbesondere in Hinblick auf die Anwendungsmöglichkeiten durch junge NachwuchswissenschaftlerInnen. Ein großes Anliegen von Glaser und Strauss bei der Entwicklung war, "Studenten dabei zu helfen, sich selbst gegen die Anwälte bloßer Verifizierung zu verteidigen, die sie darin unterweisen, ihre eigene wissenschaftliche Intelligenz zu verleugnen" (Glaser & Strauss 1998: 16). Insbesondere sollen daher die Bedingungen, unter denen dieses Anliegen meines Erachtens tatsächlich realisiert werden kann, umrissen und diskutiert werden. [...]
