Wenig wurde bislang über die erkenntnistheoretische Fundierung der Grounded Theory in der pragmatischen Sozialphilosophie und die daraus resultierenden Konsequenzen für das Verständnis der methodologischen Konzeption wie der praktischen Verfahren geschrieben. Der Band schließt diese Lücke, indem das Erkenntnismodell, ausgehend von den Arbeiten von C.S. Peirce, J. Dewey, G.H. Mead und W. James, vorgestellt und den Spuren nachgegangen wird, die dieses Modell als Geltungsbegründung in der Methodologie der Grounded Theory hinterlassen hat. Dabei geht der Text auch auf die gravierenden methodologischen Unterschiede zwischen der von Anselm L. Strauss geprägten und der von Barney G. Glaser vertretenen Variante von Grounded Theory ein und beschäftigt sich mit wesentlichen Weiterentwicklungen einer pragmatistischen Grounded Theory im Kontext postmodernen Denkens.

Seamlessly blending the personal and the political, Grounded tells the story of a hot-rod F16 fighter pilot whose unexpected pregnancy ends her career in the sky. Repurposed to flying remote-controlled drones in the Middle East from an air-conditioned trailer near Vegas, the Pilot struggles through surreal twelve-hour shifts far from the battlefield, hunting terrorists by day and being a wife and mother by night. A tour de force play for one actress, Grounded flies from the heights of lyricism to the shallows of workaday existence, targeting our assumptions about war, family, and the power of storytelling. Grounded won the 2012 Smith Prize; a 2013 Scotsman Fringe First Award; Best Production of 2013 Award from the Off-West End Theatre Awards; was named a London Top Ten Play in both the Evening Standard and The Guardian; 2016 Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Solo Show and the 2015 Teatro Netto Festival Grand Prize.

Most writing on sociological method has been concerned with how accurate facts can be obtained and how theory can thereby be more rigorously tested. In The Discovery of Grounded Theory, Barney Glaser and Anselm Strauss address the equally Important enterprise of how the discovery of theory from data?systematically obtained and analyzed in social research?can be furthered. The discovery of theory from data?grounded theory?is a major task confronting sociology, for such a theory fits empirical situations, and is understandable to sociologists and laymen alike. Most important, it provides relevant predictions, explanations, interpretations, and applications. In Part I of the book, "Generation Theory by Comparative Analysis," the authors present a strategy whereby sociologists can facilitate the discovery of grounded theory, both substantive and formal. This strategy involves the systematic choice and study of several comparison groups. In Part II, The Flexible Use of Data," the generation of theory from qualitative, especially documentary, and quantitative data Is considered. In Part III, "Implications of Grounded Theory," Glaser and Strauss examine the credibility of grounded theory. The Discovery of Grounded Theory is directed toward improving social scientists' capacity for generating theory that will be relevant to their research. While aimed primarily at sociologists, it will be useful to anyone Interested In studying social phenomena?political, educational, economic, industrial? especially If their studies are based on qualitative data.

An eye-opening and fascinating journey from an acclaimed travel writer who circled the globe without ever leaving the ground. In this age of globalism and high-speed travel, Seth Stevenson, the witty, thoughtful Slate travel columnist, takes us back to a time when travel meant putting one foot in front of the other, racing to make connections between trains and buses in remote transit stations, and wading through the chaos that most long-haul travelers float 35,000 feet above. Stevenson winds his way around the world by biking, walking, hiking, riding in rickshaws, freight ships, cruise ships, ancient ferries, buses, and the Trans-Siberian Railway-but never gets on an airplane. He finds that from the ground, one sees the world anew-with a deeper understanding of time, distance, and the vastness of the earth. In this sensational travelogue, each step of the journey is an adventure, full of unexpected revelations in every new port, at every bend in the railroad tracks, and around every street corner.

So ist sie zunachst einmal als Meta-Theorie zu bezeichnen. Diese Bezeichnung wurde ihr aber nicht vollends gerecht werden, da sie auch uber eine systematische Sammlung von Einzeltechniken und Leitlinien zur Datenaufbereitung und -analyse, zur systematischen Zusammenstellung der empirischen Daten und ihrer Konzeptualisierung verfugt. Ihre Orginatoren und Fursprecher legen jedoch viel Wert darauf, dass diese keine starre n] Anweisungen oder Kochrezepte" sein sollen (STRAUSS/CORBIN 1996: 10)."

A middle grade novel about a 12-year-old girl dealing with loss, who uncovers a rather grisly scam involving a crematorium. After her brother, sister, and father die in a plane crash, Daralynn Oakland receives 237 dolls from well-wishers, resulting in her nickname: Dolly. But dolls are little comfort to a twelve-year-old girl whose world is rocked by the dramatic changes in her life, including her angry, grieving mother's new job as a hairstylist at the local funeral home. Dolly gets a job, too, where she accidentally invents a fashionable new haircut. But in Grounded by Kate Klise, her real work begins when a crematorium comes to town, and someone has to save a dying business, solve a burning mystery, and resuscitate the broken hearts in Digginsville, Missouri, population 402.

Die AutorInnen befassen sich mit dem Hospiz als einer Versorgungsform, in der sich überlebende Begleiter und sterbende Patienten begegnen und unterstützen. Das Hospiz steht für die Einsicht, dass das Sterben zum Leben gehört und dass Menschen am Lebensende zu uns gehören! Die Entstehung einer modernen Palliativmedizin hat in den letzten Jahren dazu beigetragen, dass es in Deutschland zu einer Ergänzung von Konzepten der Hospizversorgung und der Palliativmedizin gekommen ist.

Offering alternative models based on such concepts as satisficing (acceptance of viable choices that may not be the undiscoverable optimum) and bouded rationality (the limited extent to which rational calculation can direct human behaviour), Simon shows why more empirical research based on experiments and direct observation, rather than just statistical analysis of economic aggregates, is needed.

Patty James is having a bad day. She's just lost her job, and to make matters worse, she's knocked on her butt by a couple of ill-mannered teens while on her way home from the office. As she struggles to deal with her scattered possessions, torn hose and broken high heel, who should stop to help her but a man whose looks would rival the Greek gods. Dionysus, God of Wine and Revelry, is having a field day on Earth. There's nothing he can't have and nothing he enjoys more than wearing himself out with endless day sand nights of debauchery. He never sleeps with the same woman twice, rarely stays in the same city more than a few days, and has no desire to change his lifestyle. So why is he suddenly having a hard timekeeping one little mortal female from invading his every waking thought? Excerpt: "No problem. I'm Dion, by the way," he said and offered his hand. He caught her before she was completely off balance. "Pleased to meet you Patty. Is that short for Patricia?" "No, it's Patience. It's such an old fashioned name. I was named after my grandmother. I always hated it, so I shortened it when I was a kid. I used to cry whenever anyone called me Patience. I got teased a lot when I was a kid, too. You know how cruel kids can be." She took a breath. "Stop rambling, Patty. You sound like an idiot!" "Coffee, I'll make coffee. You sit." She shook her head. "I'm sorry. Please, sit." "Thank you," Dion said with a big smile. "Do I make you nervous?" "No," she said, lying through her teeth. "Good. I don't want you to be nervous." "I'm not," she assured him and heard him chuckle as she went about making the coffee. He sat at her tiny, Formica kitchen table, and when the coffee finished brewing, she poured them each a cup and set a plate of sugar cookies on the table between them. "Do you take cream or sugar?" He shook his head, his blonde hair falling around his shoulders, and Patty felt her heart do a flip. "No," he said. "I drink it black." Patty stared at him, not knowing what else to say. He seemed to sense her utter loss of social skills and smiled again. "You have a nice apartment. Lived here long?" "About two years," she answered. There was another silence. "Why can't I make simple conversation with this man?" "What do you do? Were you coming home from work when we met on the street?" Nodding, she said, "Yes. Coming home from work for the last time, actually. I got laid off today, downsizing they called it." "I'm sorry to hear that." "I'll find another job," she said more to herself than to him. "Well," he said, "thank you for the coffee, Patty. And good luck to you in your job search." He rose from the chair and started toward the door. "It was nice meeting you." "It was nice meeting you, too, Dion. And thank you for being nice to me on the street, and for bringing these papers to me." "You're welcome," he said and smiled at her as he reached for the doorknob. He paused a moment and looked at her kindly. "By the way, I might know of a place that's hiring." He handed her a business card. "Come by in the morning, you might be surprised." "Thank you," she said and took the card from him. His fingers brushed hers and again, she felt an electrical shock run up her arm. She watched him step into the elevator and waved as the doors slid closed. Then, shutting the door of her apartment and leaning with her back against it, she squealed, "Oh-my-god! I don't believe this!" She looked at the business card. "Dionysus" was printed in the middle of the card, followed by an address and phone number, but it gave no hint as to what his business might be. Patty sighed. It didn't matter, though, maybe her luck just changed for the better.
