Galileo, Aristotle, and Science in Counseling Psychology: To Theorize or Not to Theorize.
Gelso, Charles J.
Journal of Counseling Psychology, v38 n2 p211-13 Apr 1991
Responds to previous article by Strong on theory-driven science and naive empiricism in counseling psychology. Contrasts theory-driven science with discovery-oriented science, seeing two as complementary. Contends that findings from discovery-oriented research must eventually be placed in theoretical context to have optimum impact. Questions some of Strong's assertions about underlying unity of research and theory across situations. (Author/NB)
