I was just taking a break and cruising through the Psychology Today website and I ran into this little quote:
“Science never ends with an anecdote; otherwise, it would be sociology.”
This was the lead sentence in Satoshi Kanazawa’s piece “Are Asians More Nocturnal than Others?“.
Curiously, Kanazawa, although appointed in Management at the London School of Economics and primarily publishes as a evolutionary psychologist, has apparently used anecdotal publication outlets himself, including Social Psychology Quarterly, Rationality and Society, The Sociological Quarterly, Sociological Theory, Social Forces, and even the American Sociological Review!
