BAD SCIENCE IN PSYCHOLOGY Guest speaker: Nick Brown

Psychology claims to be a science, but just how compatible can the study of something as complicated as behaviour be with the "rules" of science as we understand them from, say, physics? Some recent examples of bad science in academic psychology will be presented; we will also discuss the limits of knowledge, and how they affect our ability to make claims that something is "true".

    My apologies for not making it; I'm not normally one for saying I'll come to something and no-showing. I'm sure it was interesting!

    It might be worth reading (re-reading?) the Ben Goldacre books prior to this. Apart from them being interesting reads in their own right, I have a feeling they'll be an interesting primer to this subject

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
