  Idiographic investigation, in sociology, is concerned with the individual or unique experience rather than with generalities. It contrasts with a nomothetic approach which seeks to establish general laws following a model of investigation derived from the natural sciences. DA

See also ethnomethodology; naturalism; phenomenological sociology; positivism; social realism; symbolic interactionism; understanding.
