Example text

Theoretical propositions are not held to be descriptive of an independent theoretical reality: they are only indirect descriptions of observational reality. They function as purely logical devices to integrate and systematize the deduction of observational causal laws. Thus, like Berkeley, the scientific empiricist treats Newtonian gravitational theory as simply serving to integrate and systematize the deductive prediction of descriptions of terrestial and planetary observational regularity, such as Galileo's law of free fall and Kepler's laws of planetary motion.

They provide no useful information over and above the description of the observed regular association of opium ingestion and drowsiness, which is itself sufficient to enable the scientist to predict instances of drowsiness. The "analysis" of such "powers" or "natures" is of no scientific value and diverts the scientist from his true business: the identification of true and useful descriptions of observational regularity. Thus, Berkeley's "language of God" became Mach's "analysis of sensations": "The communication of scientific knowledge involves description: that is, the mimetic reproduction of facts in thought, the object of which is to replace and save the trouble of new experience.

The fact that he does so successfully can only be fortuitious. In short, the instrumentalist can provide no rational account of theory development. She can provide no rational account of the way scientists develop theory to generate novel and successful predictions (Hesse, 1976). BEHAVIORISM: THE HUMEAN ACCOUNT OF HUMAN ACTION Perhaps the most rigorous illustration of the instrumentalist account of theory in any science is to be found in behaviorism. B. Watson (1913, 1924) denied that references to cognitive states play any useful role in a psychological science, partly because of the perceived inadequacy of introspective psychology, which was held to be unverifiable intersubjectively, but primarily on instrumental grounds.
