AGAR: SPEAKING OF ETHNOGRAPHY. A Sage University PAPER. (Qualitative Research Methods Series 2). By Michael H. Agar, 1985.

Ethnography is a branch of anthropology and the systematic study of individual cultures. In contrast with ethnology, ethnography explores cultural phenomena from the point of view of the subject of the study. The scientific description of the customs of individual peoples and cultures.


This book challenges the assumption that conventional scientific procedures are appropriate for the study of human affairs. Agar′s work is informed by a hermeneutic and phenomenological tradition, in which the questions the researcher′s own taken-for-granted procedures.
