Abstract

When the grounded theory appears in the 60s, it is presented and received as methodological innovation in break by the scientific traditional model. Though it is novel in several aspects, the TA is also tributary of the American sociology and the phenomenology, a double heredity that was, and continues being, a topic of debates in social sciences. Is TA positivist or constructivist, or simply hybrid? After having presented of what it consists (or it was consisting) the TA, the article explores the philosophical and methodological avenues that they present to the investigators determined to use the TA to take to end his studies.

Key words: grounded theory, positivism, constructivism, induction, substantive theory
