Is it possible for Science to Become more Adaptable?

Posted by paultpwong on December 8, 2016

George Bernard Shaw was correct, when he said, “The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.”I have always seen human behaviours as a complex phenomena, which can only be understood and measured through qualitative phenomenological research and multidimensional quantitative research. Such holistic mixed research methodology is costly and time-consuming, but is far better than qualitative alone or quick-and-dirty type of quantitative research of measuring a complex phenomenon with a few simple questions. I still believe that eventually mainstream psychology will adapt to my way of holistic and integrative thinking.
