Education and the Behavioral Sciences.
Helwig, Carl
The author delineates characteristics of research in education, focusing on the influence of the educational philosophies of logical positivism, operationalism, and pragmatism and on the strong behavioristic movements in education. A comparison is made between techniques in behavioral science research and traditional educational research methods. It is suggested that the behavioral sciences can help to unify subjective with objective knowledge for the formulation of moral obligations from social problems and assist education in developing a better understanding of the relation of the individual to the group.
