Abstract

Examines T. B. Rogers's (see record 1991-03999-001) discussion of the role of proverbs in psychology from the perspective of psychology's attempts to offer predictions as a means of correcting behavioral problems. Psychology's chief contribution to the surrounding culture lies not in prediction, but in cultural construction, in the process of which theories may take on the status of proverbs as they enter society more generally.
