The Limits of Experiment in Macro- and Microsociology

Author(s): Antoni Sułek
Subject(s): Social Sciences
Published by: Instytut Filozofii i Socjologii Polskiej Akademii Nauk
Keywords: social science; natural sciences; experiment; non-experimental research

Summary/Abstract: One of the frequently discussed features of sociology are its modest possibilities - compared with natural sciences and, even, psychology – of conducting experimental research. Hence the supposition that sociology encounters in the sphere of experiment certain obstacles which are either unknown to those sciences or not met by them in such in such a form and intensity. The aim of this paper is to depict those barriers to experimenting on individuals and social systems. Three main barriers – technical, social-psychological, and axiological are indentified and analyzed.
