The scientific method offers a standardized way for psychologists to test hypotheses, build on theories, and gain knowledge about the mind. KEY POINTS The scientific method was first outlined by Sir Francis Bacon (1561-1626) to provide logical, rational problem solving across many scientific fields. The basic steps of the scientific method are: 1) make an observation that describes a problem, 2) create a hypothesis, 3) test the hypothesis, and 4) draw conclusions and refine the hypothesis. The major precepts of the scientific method employed by all scientific disciplines are verifiability, predictability, falsifiability, and fairness. The application of the scientific theory to psychology took the discipline from a form of philosophy to a form of science. Critical thinking is a key component of the scientific method. Without it, you cannot use logic to come to conclusions.
