Περιγραφή:Dr. Mahrer has presented us with 74 beliefs, assumed to underpin current research paradigms used by the international community of researchers inpsychotherapy. Most of these beliefs are not foundational, nor are they currently endorsed by the majority of researchers in this field. The following arguments are briefly put forward: (a) Mahrer's view of a conventional philosophy of science is culturally encapsulated and reflects the Euro- American ideology that has its roots in the Enlightenment of the 17th and 18th centuries; (b) the beliefs he has articulated reflect derivative questions, rather than foundational questions, the latter of which were addressed in the classical philosophical literature of 2200 and more years ago; (c) the beliefs he attacks are, among researchers in the social sciences, largely archaic and no longer rigorously endorsed; (d) a canonical knowledge base bearing on philosophical principles of research in psychology does not exist. The first and the twelfth beliefs posited by Mahrer are, by way of example, briefly examined.
