Considering that Julius Kaiser's Systematic Indexing brought pioneer contributions to the theoretical framework of the subject approach to information, this paper retrieves the foundations of the analiticalsynthetic method conceived by Kaiser which acted as a basis for Ranganathan's faceted theory. In this sense, and by adopting William James' pragmatism as a methodological approach, it analyzes the analitical and sintetic dimensions of Kaiser's indexing method and in what extent they act as a basis for the definition of Ranganathan's method, as well as how both Kaiser's and Raganathan's methods dialogue each other. © 2014 Francisco Javier García Marco y los autores.
