Abstract : The Delphi method is a process for the controlled elicitation of group opinion by an iterative use of questionnaires with a selective feedback of earlier group responses as an informational input for later reference by group members. Recently the suggestion has begun to be voiced that Delphi might also prove a useful tool of inquiry in the area of values, in contrast to its traditional applications in the factual domain. The primary aim of the present discussion is to sketch some theoretical background considerations for the application of the Delphi method in the value area.
