Abstract 'In the first part of this paper the author examines how a need to study the intellectual roots of Grounded Theory Method (GTM) emerged out of reflecting on the authors personal GTM reception. In the process of this the author becames more and more methodologically aware of the nature, that is, the genesis and development, of GTM. Following this, he argues that a similar process of 'becoming aware of GTM' can be traced in the writings of Glaser and Strauss. At the same time, the whole paper is in itself an attempt at practicing GTM, conditioned by the published versions of GTM and the process of reception in his case. The author tries to gain awareness of both the intellectual roots of GTM and the process of his reception of this methodology. In this paper the author traces for the reader about the processual and contextual character of his GTM reception. The author shows how he finally reach the conclusion that the methodological principles of GTM existed before this approach was developed: they were not invented by the coiners of GTM. Moreover, he emphasises the existence of both professional and more private personal experience roots in the explicitation and genesis of GTM. In the second part of the paper, the author explores the conceptual trace and historical-biographical depth of the more comprehensive debate about the particular relation between GTM and CAQDASI. His main attention is the case of Glaser's posture as the 'epicenter' of the debate. The author shows the reader the way he proceeded in generating typologies of basic cases and processes to give context to Glaser's posture. This contribution is composed from an autobiographical point of view and style of research throughout.' (author's abstract)
