Experimental Method as a Way towards Causal Explanation in Psychology


Kornilova T.V.
Doctor of Psychology, Professor, Department of General Psychology, Lomonosov Moscow State University, Moscow, Russia

Schools of academic psychology, however different, share one thing in common - the experimental paradigm. The researcher works with certain experimental models that exemplify his or her understanding of causal relationship in the psychological reality under investigation. The author analyses the basics of the experimental method and criticises its representation in both positivist and «descriptive» psychology, as well as its erroneous opposition to the humanity paradigm.
