Kids and Scientists

Regarding what I said in this post, I still think Dewey was relatively right and Rorty was relatively wrong about scientific method. And Kuhn's view (which I know more thoroughly than Dewey's or Rorty's) seems closer to my understanding of Dewey's than Rorty's.

This article on how kid's behavior resembles scientific behavior confirms my appreciation of the scientific method and my view that contra Rorty, a method is not the same as a metaphysics (that is my own pithy way of putting Rorty's critique).
