The Chicago School is known in sociology both because of its methodological and urban orientation. In the work, the author analyses the main epistemological characteristics of the qualitative methodology which was used in many sociological researches. An analysis of the works of W. I. Thomas and F. Znaniecki's Polish Peasant is carried out as well as Lyndt's study of Middletown and of the Middletown in Transition. Some other monographs are also analysed. In the second part of the article an analysis is carried out of the use of qualitative methodology in the works of more contemporary authors. In that sense some basic features of the works of H. S. Becker and H. Garfinkel are carried out and the emphasis is given to the necessary unity of both the quantitative and qualitative approaches in the sociological researches.
