POTTER, J. and HEPBURN, A., 2007. Life is out there: a comment on Griffin. Discourse Studies, 9 (2), pp.276-282.
Open ended interviews remain the default data generation technique for
qualitative psychology and sociology. The commentary raises questions with
Griffin’s understanding of naturalistic materials and the emic/etic distinction. It
reiterates problems in the use of open ended interviews, and repeats the case for
more considered support for their use.
