The burden of proof

2 comments:

  1. Thank you for sharing this and turning me on to their your tube channel. I often do wonder, how this 'burden of proof' and the Wittgenstein influence on de Shazer with the language came construct of reality, and the SF ideas, which can be challenged as many social science claims can. Allow us (perhaps just me and my journey with SF) to still be skeptical of our own work, and results.

  2. Hi Michael, thanks. Glad you like it. I am fully with you in this respect.

    As I see it, scepticism, rationalism, and the scientific approach can go together very well with SF. I've been a sceptic since my early 20s (which is quite a long time ago) and this has never hindered me one bit my enthusiasm for SF. I see no problem at all in approaching SF sceptically and scientifically.

    In fact, I have, in a modest way, been trying to do some empirical research into SF (with some encouraging findings, by the way). Others have done much important work as I have reported on on this blog on several occasions.
