Theories are always tested in conjunction with a number of auxiliary hypotheses. When an observational prediction is falsified, this only shows that something is wrong with the conjunction of theory and auxiliary hypotheses. This point was clearly stated by the French physicist Pierre Duhem (1906, p. 87): ... the physicist can never subject an isolated hypothesis to experimental test, but only a whole group of hypotheses; when the experiment is in disagreement with his predictions, what he learns is that at least one of the hypotheses constituting this group is unacceptable and ought to be modified; but the experiment does not designate which should be changed.
Previously established empirical laws simpliciter will serve as good or as bad a guide to novel empirical laws as any system of theoretical postulates and correspondence rules. Skinner is thus correct to dismiss theoretical constructs as redundant with respect to scientific development, given this empiricist account of the meaning of psychological theories. 2 Relativism Neo-empiricism The problems discussed so far have been largely internal to traditional scientific empiricism. The criticisms of the relativist undermine standard scientific empiricist assumptions about the objectivity of scientific knowledge by questioning the central claim that observation provides an objective basis for the evaluation of scientific theories.
360) There is no point in raising questions about the psychological reali~y of the cognitive states and processes putatively represented by cognitive theories, since the same behavioral data are held to be consistent with a variety of competing cognitive theories, and since we cannot discriminate the correct theory by the observation of cognitive states and processes (Anderson, 1978, 1981). Yet this conception of the predictive utility of "cognitive constructs" will not bear critical investigation.
