Abstract Vielleicht gibt es keine bessere Gelegenheit, als sich angesichts des Millenniumwechsels kritisch den Glaubenssätzen, Werten und Praktiken zuzuwenden, die von qualitativen Forscher(inne)n in den USA geteilt und/oder diskutiert werden. Der Beitrag dient deshalb u.a. der Betrachtung und Diskussion einiger Grundannahmen und Probleme, die sich gegenwärtig in den Diskursen der amerikanischen qualitativen Sozialforschung abzeichnen.

As we stand poised to enter the next millennium there is perhaps no better opportunity to reflect on the beliefs, values and techniques that are shared and debated by qualitative researchers throughout the United States. This paper explores some of the challenges facing those who pursue qualitative inquiry in the course of completing a graduate research degree: how we learn about research methodology and how we think about, use, and support the use of computer software research tools. The paper explores some of the assumptions inherent in the language of inquiry and discusses critical issues that qualitative researchers struggle with and continue to debate.
