Deception and Role Playing: On Telling the Good Guys from the Bad Guys
Cooper, Joel
American Psychologist, 31, 8, 605-610, Aug 76
Discusses the question of appropriate research methodologies for social psychology research, casting "involved participation" and role enactment as contrasting methodologies, with deception used in either case where necessary. Involved participation is considered to be more flexible and more suited for the testing of hypotheses whereas role enactment generates hypotheses. (Author/JM)
