Baconian inductivism in research on human decision making

Sahlin, Nils-Eric LU (1991) In Theory & Psychology 4(1). p.431-450
Abstract
The paper discusses the pros and cons of inductive research methods. It is argued that, despite the profusion of good arguments against this scientific strategy, it is frequently employed, for example in psychology. A case probe taken from the realm of cognitive psychology is used as an illustration.
