Wolfgang Stroebe on the Stapel investigation – no, it isn’t just social psychology
Belongs here too.
My ISCON facebook feed linked in to this commentary on the Stapel report from Wolfgang Stroebe. He points out the problem with blaming it all on Social Psychology, and brings up cases from other areas of research where similar types of fraud has been perpetrated (and, yes, he brings up Schön, as I have also done a few times). Also brings up hind-sight bias, which I think is important.
