Sadly, this page says nothing at all about what thick description is. The argument about semantics needing context (repeated at indexicality, really) is nothing like specific enough. Certainly some historians find thick description a useful working concept, for other reasons.

An example?[edit]

I think the average reader would need to see an example to have some sort of an idea about what thick description is. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:00, 13 October 2015 (UTC)
