Theory-Driven Science and Naive Empiricism in Counseling Psychology.
Strong, Stanley R.
Journal of Counseling Psychology, v38 n2 p204-10 Apr 1991
Asserts that counseling psychologists' aversion to theory-driven science and their enthusiasm for naive empiricism impede scientific progress. Identifies "received view" of science as theory-driven science, points out symptoms and consequences of the failure to apply this view, and argues that greater scientific progress will result from moving toward, not away from, theory-driven science.
