The following pages include a number of comments, from the standpoint of critical humanism, about the nature of psychological knowledge. Each of these pages consists of a short commentary or note about some issue or controversy related to psychological research and can be read as a free-standing comment or critique. However, each page is linked to the page before it and the page after it, so that all the comments can be read, from beginning to end, as a lager argument about the nature of psychological knowledge and some of the problems related to the way this kind of knowledge is commonly understood.
The pages in this section are as follows:
- Science and Pseudoscience
- Narrow Science and Broad Science
- What Do Psychologists Actually Know?
- Reasoned Inquiry
- Psychology and Values
- Why Psychology is Inherently Political
