Abstract:

Philosopher Stephen Toulmin talks about Plato's preference for theories that take a mathematical form. Professor Toulmin adds that this preference was carried over to modern times, so that a discipline like psychology might be deemed inferior to theoretical physics. However, since the 1960s, Professor Toulmin explains, "...we've been moving back into something...more Aristotelian than Platonist...the difference being that we're quite open to the idea that different inquiries, different disciplines...are entitled to develop their own methods."
