[Vier methodologische Grundregeln der Marienthal-Studie]Wien, 1933
In all this work certain norms for empirical study were maintained as a matter of course.

The task was to combine diverse findings into a small number of »integrating constructs.« At the same time, it was imperative to explicate as clearly as possible the procedure by which such greater depth was achieved. In a paper written in 1933 summarizing the Austrian experience, the following four rules were singled out and amply exemplified:
