Sample text

P. 86) Scientific reasoning, then, is something richer and more complex than a logic of scientific inference, but it is nonetheless rational. In addition to the logic of hypothesis testing, there is, at least potentially, a rationality rooted in the domain-specific theories that guide the process of theorizing, promoting justifiable choices about what variables to investigate, what constitutes relevant evidence, what hypotheses to pursue, and so forth (see also Koslowski, Marasia, Chelenza, & Dublin, 2008).

Suppose, for example, an individual who believes that knowledge is innate in the genes (nativism) encounters the view that knowledge is learned from one’s environment (empiricism). It may appear that the two views contradict each other and that a choice must be made between them—they cannot both be right. A dialectical thinker, however, would consider the possibility that these two views can be synthesized to generate a perspective more defensible than either—in this case, perhaps, some sort of interactionist view.

Thus prior knowledge guides observations, as surely as new observations lead to changes in knowledge. (p. 103) Barbara Koslowski (1996) conducted an extensive program of research on adolescent scientific reasoning and, on the basis of her Inference, Thinking, and Reasoning ■ 31 results and related considerations from the philosophy of science, reached a similar conclusion: I have argued that neither covariation alone nor theory alone constitute algorithms that guarantee the right answer in scientific reasoning.
