Contributions of Basic Sciences to Science of Education. Studies in Educational Administration.
Lall, Bernard M.
The science of education has been influenced by the basic sciences to the extent that educational research now has been able to modernize its approach by accepting and using the basic scientific methodology and experimental techniques. Using primarily the same steps of scientific investigations, education today holds a place of much greater esteem than ever before. The methods of deductive and inductive reasoning are the basis of scientific inquiry, which has proved of extreme value not only to physical science, but also to the study of human behavior. There is no question that basic sciences like anthropology, biology, medical science, psychology, mathematics and statistics, and economics have helped make education truly a science. Indeed, without the knowledge of scientific methodology provided by these sciences, there would be no true research in the field of education. (Author)
