BOROBIA, Raquel. The hipothesis in qualitative studies: The analytic induction in an investigation about adolescence. Rev. Pilquen [online]. 2004, n.6. ISSN 1851-3123.

This article presents a strategy of treatment of the facts under study, the Analytic Induction, as a possible rigorous analysis which can grant legitimacy to scientific readings of reality. At first, it shows some issues relative to Analytic Induction in general and enunciates the steps of the method. After that, it presents a partial example of the application of this strategy in the author's thesis Adolescence and utopia in the nineties. It explains how the study was carried out, which its categories of analysis were, how the sample was established and the analysis of data performed, as prescribed by this methodologic strategy. In order to do this, it starts from the first hypotheses and shows how they were modified until the accomplishment of the final hypothesis, which gave rise to the creation of a typology. There is a chart that shows the development of the process and another one with the typology based on the semiotic square of Greimas.

Palabras clave : Methodology of the investigation; Qualitative studies; Analytic induction; Scientific hypotheses; Adolescence.
