Commenting on Allakhverdov's article, the authors introduce the term, «methodological cycle», which unites theoretical and empirical, deductive and inductive knowledge. Making a distinction between empirical and pseudo-empirical science, the authors discuss possibility of comprehensive non-contradictory empirical descriptions and theoretical interpretations, uses of qualitative and quantitative methods in psychological research, and reflection of these problems in teaching.
