Publisher: Cambridge University Press
The history of the social sciences has been marked by frequent and fierce debates on the rules of scientific methodology. Even the most general criteriaNwhich in the natural sciences are generally agreed uponNare emphatically disputed in the social sciences. Presenting the history of psychology in the Netherlands as a case study of Western social science, this book examines the divisive nature of social science methodology.
