Further Details
Abstract Science has been adopted as an object of study by various other disciplines, among them psychology. Approaches to the 'psychology of science' can be grouped as (1) works based principally on the study of the personal characteristics of scientists in terms of types of reasoning, personality, or special capacities such as creativity that differentiate them from non-scientists; & (2) those focused more on the cognitive aspects of science, such as philosophers, epistemologists, & cognitive psychologists or scientists sharing their interests. Areas of interest include processes of normalization in science, normative aspects in processes of publication, processes of social influence & social comparison, values & beliefs in science, belief systems, science & ideology, ethics in the production of scientific knowledge, organizational context of scientific research, & science-society relations. Prominent authors & their works in these & other areas are referenced.
