Abstract
Different types of eveidence used in answering the question: what is good indexing? are considered. The evidence is presented in the context of the method on inquiry which produced mysticism, rationalism or empiricism. The method of mysticism is illustrated with reference to Cutter and the problem of specific entry. Ranganathan's approach to the controversy over alphabetical vs. classified arrangement is used to illustrate the method of rationalism. Cleverdon's work is taken as an example of the method of empiricism. In providing evidence for good indexing, the method of empiricism is found wanting. It is suggested that the method be improved by fundamental research into problems of sampling and definition, and that it be supplementend by other methods of inquiry
