To refuse dichotomies is to be both fragile and strong, vulnerable and passionate. Fragile and vulnerable because one is easily assimilated or ignored by either end of an existing polarity; strong and passionate because such a refusal is healing and forms powerful, often unexpected bonds between people. Anselm Strauss' theory of action (and its inextricable intertwining with questions of method) makes many such refusals: between macro and micro, between formal and empirical, between applied and theoretical, between diversity and commonality. The result is a unique perspective within modern social science which combines the situated detail of the 'case study' with the best architecture of social theory.
