[Xmca-l] Re: Fwd: [Методология и история психологии] Uploaded What theory is not.pdf



For me, the lack of theory and the lack of applying theory in social
science postgraduate courses is dumbfounding.  Most of the students and
staff I've met don't seem to mind however.

Though it seems like moving through the thickest of treacle to even state
this.... there is a need for such papers.

Best,
Huw
