Rhetoric tradition of qualitative research approach
The article deals with one of the theoretical sources of the qualitative approach in psychological research – rhetorical version of the scientific method of G. Vico. The author traces the parallels between the understanding of the essence of the method of G. Vico and methodological pluralism as a space for debate in the field of theorizing in contemporary psychology. The question of standards for the evaluation of research relevant to pluralist model is discussed.
