Comment on Dr. H. Steiner's paper

Date of publication: November 1, 1968


The group discounted to a large extent the theoretical aspects of the paper. The general line and thoroughness of the analysis was endorsed as relevant and practical. Correspondingly the distinction between descriptives versus function status of the model was ignored on the policy of "don't worry about the validity of an 'explanation' until you've got one". Put another way, the group viewed the paper as a psychologically informed way of collecting and reviewing data and not as an explicit psycho-sociological model of behaviour.
