Methodological principles -- Communication concourses, Q samples, and conditions of instruction -- Person samples and the single case -- Statistical analysis -- A concluding subjective-science postcript. Direct, well-organized, and easy to follow, Q Methodology, Second Edition, by Bruce McKeown and Dan B. Thomas, reviews the philosophical foundations of subjective communicability (concourse theory), operant subjectivity, and quantum-theoretical aspects of Q as relevant to the social and behavioral sciences. The authors discuss data-gathering techniques (communication concourses, Q samples, and Q sorting), statistical techniques (correlation and factor analysis and the important calculation of factor scores), and strategies for conducting small person-sample research along Q methodological lines.
