"Why Science Matters: Understanding the Methods of Psychological Research" rises above standard research methods texts by presenting an up-to-date view of contemporary psychological science as it is currently understood and practiced. It explores not only the procedural aspects of psychological research, but also delves into the issue of how to accomplish effective science. It explicates how hypotheses and theories are to be evaluated. It suggests that the proper approach to devising and evaluating theories is by abduction, not by induction or deduction alone. It incorporates new investigatory procedures, current methodologists, conflicts and issues, implications of the philosophy of science, and a lively prose style. It provides a picture of science that will engage students and expand their abilities as both scientists and psychologists.
