This paper summarizes the discussion of ethnology in Slovenia between 'narodopisje' and anthropology from the point of view of its theoretical and methodological issues. At the same time it delineates some characteristics of ethnology and folklore studies in Slovenia in the 20th century, whereby the discussion on the wider social implications is omitted. Considerations put forward here are limited to those disciplinary issues which are the fruit of self-reflexive and critical insights in ethnology, which enable to highlight the origins, the formation and changes of research patterns from predominant philological and cultural-historical roots of 'narodopisje' to anthropologically oriented contemporary research. Some general observations, a retrospective view of the status of theory and methodology, the tradition of 'narodopisje', the 'farewell to folk life', the new methodological horizons, the predicament of the 'two-headed ethnology' and recent anthropologization are considered.
