Field of Science

Empirical English

I'd like to point readers to a brief article in the New York Times today discussing new applications of psychological research methods to the study of literature. While it sounds like some of it is based on using neuroscientific methods to answer what are actually behavioral questions, the application of empirical methods is always a good thing. Any statement that makes an empirical claim about the world should be testable in some fashion, and the fact that more and more fields are actually testing the claims they make is progress.
