Lunch Seminar: Is scientific psychology empirical?
6 May @ 12:00 - 13:00
For our next lunch seminar, May 6th, Frank Hartmann will give a talk titled “Is scientific psychology empirical?”. An abstract can be found at the bottom.
We will start at 12.00 using Zoom. You will receive an invitation to join the meeting 5 to 10 minutes prior to that time.
Abstract: Is scientific psychology empirical?
There is an old – but constantly resurfacing – discussion in the empirical scientific psychology (ESP) literature that much – if not all – ESP is at best pseudo-empirical. In this talk I will introduce the discussion, point to its relevance for both philosophy and applied social sciences, and explore some traditional responses. These responses typically suggest that the problem of pseudo-empiricism echoes poor methodology. Instead, I (try to) argue that the persistence of the discussion suggests that the problem concerns the nature of (psychological) concepts.
