Scientism and Sentence-Combining.
Holzman, Michael
College Composition and Communication, v34 n1 p73-79 Feb 1983
Examines the trend toward "scientism" or applying a quantifiable methodology for its own sake to research on sentence combining. Argues that sentence combining is only a tool and not a suitable curriculum for composition instruction and cautions against using social scientific methodologies in essentially humanistic disciplines.
