In a serious research of the asumptions underlying experimental psychology, Pertti Saariluoma urges social scientists to mirror upon their approaches and method. He has revisited the philosophy of technological know-how to discover a brand new method of utilizing its ways to psychology. Foundational Analysis indicates the way it is feasible to research latest methodological arguments and locate loopholes in them, and increases new matters for the explanation at the back of empirical method. it is going to be of curiosity to researchers and scholars in cognitive technological know-how and different social sciences, and the philosophy of technological know-how.

Sample text

5 In terms of criticism and independence of thought Allport, Antonis and Reynolds’ example is surprisingly similar to Beck’s reinterpretation. In both cases obvious truths are put under critical scrutiny by demonstrating some implicit limitedness in argumentation. Indeed, a very large part of empirical research in psychology arises from similar critical analysis of arguments, which is, in essence, tacit foundational analysis. The positive consequences of the above kind of critique explain why in this book attention is called to careful analysis of argumentation.

Experimental cognitive psychology just happens to be a very dominant direction of psychology and in many ways too is the ‘avant-garde’ of psychological thinking. Hence, it is logical to give some emphasis to it, but the connections to other ‘psychologies’ such as therapy, developmental psychology, social psychology or the various forms of physiological psychology are obvious. Acknowledgements Throughout the decade I have thought through the themes of this book. I acknowledge with deep joy the understanding and insightful dialogues with, and warmhearted support of, Liisa Saariluoma.

It is quite possible to have tacit presuppositions which eventually prove to be true. Often the world-views of researchers have contradicted theories and an intuitive beginning has motivated them to show the errors in the argumentation. The Catholic Spallanzani, for example, derived from his religious belief the inspiration to pursue the admirably astute experiments which refuted Needham’s and Buffo’s theory of vitality. 5 Intuitions and other presuppositions are thus neither good nor bad per se.
