Summary/Abstract: In this paper, I shall present a short comparation and an overview of theoretical progress from classical to contemporary possibility of reaching an ideal of scientific validity of ethnography during the conduct of ethnographical research and after it, when writing of an ethnography is a necessity. Also, I’ll try to relate the question of scientific validity with the question of incommensurability of paradigms that inspire ethnographers while conducting fieldwork and writing their ethnographical texts after the fieldwork is finished.
