Abstract:This article indicates practical uses to which a dialectical approach (see Ooldwell, 1981) can be put in empirical research by describing an investigation which specifically attempts to do this. The article focuses its attention on measuring role conflict, job satisfaction and situational anxiety in a sample of largely unskilled Black industrial workers. It utilizes a dialectical method involving both nomothetic and ideographic nalyses which are synthesized in an attempt to obtain a morecomplete criterion of validity. Fig., notes/ ref., tab.
