Research Design Quote of the Day
| Peter Klein |
I worry that the drive for “clean” identification as a methodological obsession is driving some junior researchers . . . to a pursuit of the cute instrument (whether natural or experimental). This is leading them down the intellectual cul de sac of precise answers to trivial questions.
You see this kind of lament expressed more and more in various social science fields. Will there be a backlash against the identification obsession?
