"Science is one way of forcing us, kicking and screaming if necessary, to modify our views."

--Carol Tavris

(The article from which this quote was taken is a good summary of the rift within psychology between the scientists and the clinicians. Ms. Tavris, though, glosses over the scientists' equal responsibility for the rift: just as many clinicians can't think skeptically, many scientists are too willing to discount clinical evidence, no matter how meager or flawed the "study" that supposedly refutes it.)
