1 Observing the behavior of a pigeon in a Skinner box (Dtarazona, 1998). The empiricist, on the other hand, derives knowledge from experience, that is, “objective” reality. ” Ideally, science should possess a healthy blend of both perspectives. On the one hand, science should, of course, be grounded in objective objects. The objects one studies should be independent of the psychical realm. A cup of coffee is a cup of coffee regardless of our belief or theory about the existence of the cup. On the other hand, void of any rationalist activity, science becomes the study of objects for which we are not allowed to assign meaning.
Given the difﬁculty in measuring social constructs, should this then mean the social scientist give up and not study the objects of his or her craft? Of course not. But what it does mean is that she must be extremely cautious, conservative, and tentative regarding conclusions drawn from empirical observations. The social scientist must be up front about the weaknesses of her research, and must be very careful not to overstate conclusions. , the time it takes to fall asleep). We can perform experimental trials where we give some subjects melatonin and others none, and record who falls to sleep faster.
THE PHILOSOPHICAL BASES OF KNOWLEDGE 3 support or contradict your theory. If no evidence exists, you may still theorize, but you should then admit to your audience the lack of current empirical support for your hypothesis. As an example of recent “heighted theorizing,” recall the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 where the Boeing 777 aircraft vanished, apparently without a trace, during its ﬂight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing in March 2014. Media were sometimes criticized for proposing numerous theories as to its disappearance, ranging from the plane being ﬂown into a hidden location to it being hijacked or a result of pilot suicide.
