Why psychology isn’t science: Alex B. Berezow

A doctorate in microbiology wrote this piece about psychology not being science.

Why can we definitively say that? Because psychology often does not meet the five basic requirements for a field to be considered scientifically rigorous: clearly defined terminology, quantifiability, highly controlled experimental conditions, reproducibility and, finally, predictability and testability.

I’ve been out of school for a bit and am struggling to remember if – for example- ecology ¬†or climate science meets those requirements too.
