29). Others have wanted to include human volition under their concept of cause, at least in sciences studying people. For example, Collingwood (1940) suggested "that which is 'caused' is the free and deliberate act of a conscious and responsible agent, and 'causing' him to do it means affording him a motive for doing it" (p. 285). This is the kind of attribution for the cause of action presupposed throughout most of the history of Western civilization, but that came to represent only a minority viewpoint in 20th-century psychology, despite persisting as the prevailing view in other disciplines such as history and law.

Thus, although one cannot prove theories correct, one can, by this logic, prove them false. Although it is hoped that this example makes the validity of the syllogism of falsification clear, it is important to discuss some of the assumptions implicit in the argument and raise briefly some of the concerns voiced by critics of Popper's philosophy, particularly as it applies to the behavioral sciences. First, consider the first line of the falsification syllogism. The one assumption pertinent to this, about which there is agreement, is that it is possible to derive predictions from theories.

1973, p. 75) Such paradoxes were especially troublesome to a philosophical school of thought that had taken the purely formal analysis of science as its task, attempting to emulate Whitehead and Russell's elegant symbolic logic approach that had worked so well in mathematics. , (raven -> black) <-> (nonblack -> nonraven)] may not seem relevant to how actual scientific theories come to be accepted, this is typical of the logical positivist approach. Having adopted symbolic logic as the primary tool for the analysis of science, then proposition forms and their manipulation became the major topic of discussion.
