This Brief aims to provide a theoretically innovative introduction to the methodology of the human sciences. It presents a new version of methodology, as a system of mutually linked acts of creating knowledge where both abstract and concrete features of research are intricately intertwined. It shows how the constructions of particular methods that are used in the science of psychology are interdependent with general psychology. This is exemplified as the Methodology Cycle. The need for an emphasis on the Methodology Cycle grows out of the habitual presentation of methods as if they were independent from the assumptions which they are built upon, with the ultimate goal of searching for and creating universal principles. Chapters discuss the Methodology Cycle and its uses in various areas of empirical study in psychological functions.

Featured topics in this Brief include:

The strict separation between methodology and methods.
Introspection, the primary method of psychology.
Extrospection, the act of introspection turned outwards.
Generalization and its effect on uniqueness.

From Methodology to Methods in Human Psychology will be of interest to psychologists, undergraduate and graduate students, and researchers.
