Wittgenstein writes: Consider for example the proceedings that we call ‘games’. I mean board-games, cardgames, ball-games, Olympic games, and so on. What is common to them all? Don’t say: There must be something common, or they would not be called ‘games’ but look and see whether there is anything common to all. For if you look at them you will not see something that is common to all, but similarities, relationships, and a whole series of them at that. To repeat: don’t think, but look! (Wittgenstein, 1953, aphorism 66).

Yet he also criticizes those who leap to generate theoretical statements without regard for systematic data collection and analysis, and calls such statements ‘immaculate conjectures’ or ‘immaculate conceptualizations’. Again the traps for the novice and the unwary are legion without further insight and guidance. A researcher embarking upon use of GTM will have to avoid the Scylla of ‘mere description’ on the one side, and the Charybdis of ‘immaculate conceptualization’ on the other. One problem actually lies in the way in which the term data is understood in GTM, and the ambiguities in the early GTM works.

G. Margaret Kearney, notes that students subjected Strauss to constant pressure in the 1980s and 1990s to outline simple step-by-step recipes for generating grounded theories. Strauss responded by offering heuristics, rules-of-thumb, that all-too-often students saw as virtual rules to be followed regardless of the research context. A CELEBRATION OF DIFFERENCE? We have deliberately entitled this introduction ‘Grounded Theory Research: Methods and Practices’, since we both firmly see many of the developments from The Discovery of Grounded Theory-vintage GTM as strengths and enhancements of GTM, rather than as dissipations and diversions.
