Abstracts

EN
The aim of the paper is to discuss the views, which approach of the qualitative or quantitative methods in social sciences is either separable, or irreconcilable. At first, the author gives an outline of those views and shows, how they deal with various aspects of the qualitative/quantitative divide. Next, he tries to indicate the roots of that divide in the works of Herbert Blumer. Further, his analysis of the categories of quantity, quality, and measure is designed to show that the divide in question is based on a wrong, one-sided understanding of the qualitative as well as quantitative approaches, which in fact can neither be separated nor conceived as contradictory.
