Early in 1986 I invited Professor Robinson to collaborate on a quantity of the Annals dedicated to the subject matter of the 'person' in psychology. He accredited my invitation later that yr suggesting, as a substitute, that the amount be dedicated to the subject matter of clarification in psychology. I gladly compromised for, as I knew from his exterisive writings at the historical past and philosophy of psychology, the idea that of rationalization is firmly rooted in philosophical anthropology. The contributions via Rom Harre, James Lamiell, Joseph Margolis, and George Miller have been to be had in June, 1988, and the commentaries and replies to commentaries early in 1989. thankfully, foundational papers put on good, because the content material of the current quantity so aptly testifies. starting with quantity 6, the Annals should be totally edited and ready utilizing the pc amenities at our middle. due to the committed attempt of my colleague, Professor William Baker, this is often the 1st quantity made from camera-ready reproduction. His own aid and technical services made the transition to desk-top publishing slightly under ambitious. Mrs. Valerie Welch, our heart secretary, entered the textual content and controlled my own correspondence; Casey Boodt proofread the complete manuscript; and the college of Alberta keeps to aid my involvement with this sequence. Dan Robinson's dedication to scholarship additionally extends to the extra mundane job of modifying. each quantity with a co-editor is a problem; he made this one a delight.

Example text

Historicizing science obviously entrenches 'folk' considerations. The result is that a realism suited to science may be disposed to treat the perceived world (sketched in its phenomenological laws) as the real world or at least as an ineliminable part of the real world; and that, accordingly, either the unobserved theoretical entities postulated in accord with explanations under invariant laws are to be dismissed (van Fraassen, 1980) or such entities, but not necessarily the invariant laws postulated for explanatory purposes, are to be in realist terms justified by reference to experimental, technological or predictive activities centered in the phenomenological evidence itself (Cartwright, 1983; Hacking, 1983).
