The present study addresses various statements of music therapists regarding the subjective significance of hearing by means of the qualitative Grounded Theory Method. The purpose of this evaluation is to analyze correlations and focal points of self-reported experiential knowledge. The results are presented in three categories. The first category demonstrates how additional implicit patterns of meaning are reflected in the methodic and stylistic practice of answering. The second category depicts the experience of hearing and its relevance to three interrelated senses of self: self, other and the world. In the third part, thematic content of answers is interpreted in terms of subject areas, so-called Topoi. A discussion of implicitly and explicitly delivered ways of thinking and conceptual frameworks of action serves as reflection and development of knowledge, supported, in conclusion, by exemplary secondary literature concerning the science of hearing.
