Nine modules of mental processing for the qualitative researcher
are profiled: thinking analytically, realistically, symbolically,
ethically, multidisciplinarily, artistically, summarily,
interpretively, and narratively. The book also explores how
qualitative research designs, data collection, data analyses, and
write-ups can be enriched through over sixty different lenses,
filters, and angles on social life. Thinking Qualitatively first
explains the often used but sometimes misused terms for inquiry,
followed by a review of traditional analytic basics. The book then

grounded theory, phenomenology, ethnography, case study, narrative
inquiry, mixed methods, and arts based research in education, the
social sciences, and health care are addressed. Recent research is
