The Bogus Science.
Anderson, C. C.
Canadian Journal of Education, v6 n4 p8-22 1981
Discusses three sorts of psychological science: Science 1, a natural science with conditional (causal) laws; Science 2, with probabilistic laws; and Science 3, a "human science" trying to capture the complexity of human experience and behavior. Argues that Science 2 and Science 3 should be treated as belief systems which people may find useful for their various purposes. (Author)
