'Realism and Psychological Science' by Prof David Maree

Posted on June 30, 2020

"Realism and Psychological Science"

We are very excited to announce Prof Maree's new book, 'Realism and Psychological Science', published by #Springer. He briefly argue that the idea of #science we have formed through our training and practices is wrong. Science in #psychology is regarded as largely positivistic involving measurement and experiment and the only fitting method for #socialsciences is #qualitativebecause it deals with meaningful experience. However, a #realist view accommodates both, puts measurement in its place as one way of getting to know things and acknowledges the critical slant of #constructionism and qualitative approaches as fundamental to science. Of course, this is done with qualifications and specifications!
