On the Hypothetico-Deductive Nature of Science--Darwin's Finches
Lawson, Anton E.
Science & Education, v18 n1 p119-124 Jan 2009
Allchin (2006) has misinterpreted a classic case of hypothetico-deductive (HD) science in terms of his preferred "let's-gather-some-data-and-see-what-emerges" view. The misrepresentation concerns the research program of Peter and Rosemary Grant on Darwin's finches. The present essay argues that the Grants' research is HD in nature and includes a statement by Peter Grant to that effect.
