Summary:

"Ultimately, all reading of texts is qualitative, even when certain characteristics of a text are later converted into numbers." (p. 16)

"Content analysis is a research technique for making replicable and valid inferences from texts (or other meaningful matter) to the contexts of their use." (p.18)

"Texts have no objective -- that is no reader-independent -- qualities." (p.22)

"Texts do not have single meanings that could be 'found', 'identified,' and 'described' for what they are" (p.22)

"Deductive and inductive inferences are not central to content analysis." (p.36) ... "the whole enterprise of content analysis may well be regarded as an argument of an analysts abductive claims." (p.38)
