Abstract : The report summarizes the activities associated with a conference devoted to the methodological grounds for reaching decisions in social science. Eighteen social scientists participated in a two-day seminar devoted to an examination of the procedures recently advanced by Harold Garfinkel and his associates. This position, which has been labeled 'ethnomethodology,' raises a series of issues central to more established methodologies. Prior to the conference, participants received a set of seven papers describing in detail the ethnomethodological position. The conference proceedings were transcribed. (Author)
