 - [March 11, 1960 Garfinkel wrote to Ed Rose, “Yesterday I finished a paper titled ‘Common Sense Knowledge of Social Structures: I. The Documentary Method of Interpretation”. I shall submit it to AJS or ASR … The paper is the first of a series of six which lead up to the program of ethnoscience as a way of formulating and solving the problem of literal description of social reality, i.e. the evidence problem in sociology. The first paper formulates the thing we are up against I.e. the work of documenting and the fact that this occurs in common sense situations of choice, both of which describe innumerable situations of actual sociological inquiry, lay and professional, whereas prevailing discussions and text suppress these features by the idealization  ((some expressions deleted by x)) that adequate evidence is the product of rules of procedure employed in calculable situations of choice.// I started to write the combined paper, The Problem of Literal Description of Social Reality and the Program of Ethnoscience”. Yesterday I bought all of Wittgenstein’s stuff and began to read. I must now delay the statement of the ethnoscience program except in gross characterization. Wittgenstein permits me to get into marvelous details, but they consist of enumerated remarks which I shall not be able to formulate under the auspices of a unified program by the time of the meetings even if I thought it was a wise thing to do, which I don’t. Wittgenstein’s stuff is touching off a flow of fresh and interesting thoughts and I want to keep it going.” [Correspondence in Harold Garfinkel Papers Special Collection, UCLA]
