Abstract

Our respondents have provided though‐provoking counterpoints to our original paper (Moon, Dillon, & Sprenkle, 1990). Our response is one of synthesis. First, we describe a continuum of social science inquiry paradigms as a framework for exploring the assumptions underlying our respective positions. Second, we address the key issues raised by our respondents. Third, we encourage balance in our research efforts and continuing dialogue. Finally we restate our basic thesis‐that qualitative research methodology has the potential to advance the science and practice of family therapy. Copyright © 1991, Wiley Blackwell.
