His contirbutions[edit]

Donald T. Campbell died ten years ago. He made great some great contributions to science. The two that mean the most to me are his influence on Karl E. Weick's the social psychology of organizing (second edition, 1979, McGraw-Hill) and his contributions to evolutionary epistemology. (As far as I know he used this term for the first time in Natural selection as an epistemological model (1970, p. 59); Dawkins was lucky that Campbell didn't also coin the term meme in that publication or in his 1974 Evolutionary epistemology, where we do read about mnemonically supported thought.)
The subject of my master thesis was the role of evolutionary processes in strategy development in an organizational context. Campbell was one of my main sources, I owe him a lot. In the coming month or so I'll extend the information in the Wikipedia with what learned about this great scientist. I hope to see a lot of reactions and learn some more on this subject! wil 21:57, 4 May 2006 (UTC)

Two suggestions[edit]

Two suggestions:

  • With the big mention of "Convergent and Discriminant Validation by the Multitrait-Multimethod Matrix" I would expect it to appear in the references.
  • A link to Campbell's Law should also be provided.

I'm glad to see that these are added on, and some more[edit]

I am very new to wikipedia and not an expert in Donald Campbell at all. I've recently found some of his work though and tried to add it. More specifically, his research on experimental designs, the experimental society, and the fish scale model of knowledge seem particularly emblematic. I hope others will help make this page better. Apologies for any bad formatting! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.61.13.98 (talk) 17:20, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
