Abstract [en]

Jahoda (2012) criticizes discursive social psychology (DSP) on several differentgrounds; specifically, he argues that DSP has opaque methodological procedures,is of questionable scientific merit, involves over-interpretation of its data, andimplicitly claims its findings to be universal rather than contextually specific. Wechallenge these criticisms by arguing that observational studies of the kind typicalwithin DSP research have a perfectly valid place within a scientific social psychol-ogy, that the interpretations made by DSP researchers should be seen in thecontext of a temporally extended research process in which they are subject tocriticism and potential replication, and that Jahoda is himself guilty of over-interpretation by inferring claims of universality when such an inference is notwarranted by the data (i.e. the qualitative content of the sample of research papersconsidered by Jahoda).
