The Scientific Method as a Guide in All Teaching: As Promoted by Science Teachers in the New York City System
Judging by the foregoing statements, there seems to be a count1'y-wide worship of the scientific method amongst science teachers, and, further, there seems to be a strong desire or wish on their part to spread and to urge the use of this method to all phases of activity and knowledge. As already pointed out in the beginning of this Thesis, the scientific method is a useful tool to employ in the solution of problems in a wide variety of fields whenever it is possible to obtain measurable data, but, it has its own limitations - not everything may be measured. Therefore I it should not be urged as a universal method to be applied to all branches of knowledge. This is the reason why the writer cannot agree with the contention that it be used as a guide in all teaching and as a 'Way of Life'.
