Researcher[edit]

I've redirected Researcher here as it was basically just an unsourced WP:DICTDEF with a seemingly haphazard/spammy list of institutions tacked after the def. But there's also Researcher (job title) to consider merging, probably best suited here in a section discussing the professionalization of research (and thus appearance of formal job titles).

Are researchers scientists?[edit]

Are researchers scientists? What do others think? XOttawahitech (talk) 14:13, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

The lede says this: " There are several forms of research: scientific, humanities, artistic, economic, social, business, marketing, practitioner research, etc.". I don't think I could have said it better. In other words, some researchers are scientists, but not all are.--Obi-Wan Kenobi (talk) 15:16, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
FYI, the edit under dispute is this one: [1]. I personally don't think Category:Scientists is a good parent for Category:Researchers given the diversity of that category for now - having it as a "see also" works better. The question is a bit misleading, and seems more like a rhetorical question, and could lead to endless disputes. I think the actual question we should answer is, should Category:Researchers be in category Category:Scientists. If you look at the current contents, my feeling is, No.--Obi-Wan Kenobi (talk) 15:18, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
All researchers are NOT scientists. Yes some do scientific research however there are other forms (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Research#Forms_of_research). This should not even be a discussion, rather looks like someone is making a Wikipedia:POINT. Mrfrobinson (talk) 20:52, 23 March 2014 (UTC) 17:21, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

Aristotle and Scientific Method[edit]

Can somebody please tell me why Aristotle list as creator of Scientific Method? Scientific method was created 1000 years after him. Aristotle was a philosopher not a Scientist.Teaksmitty (talk) 15:49, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

You could try reading the reference you continue to delete. I'm sorry that you don't like Aristotle being listed in such a way but it takes more than your personal disapproval to make it "controversial". Helpsome (talk) 15:58, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

Not a word is mention about scientific method on Aristotle page. He was a great philosopher that's what he is known by. Teaksmitty (talk) 16:04, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

See History of scientific method#Aristotelian science and empiricism. And [2]. Dougweller (talk) 16:06, 6 August 2014 (UTC)
User:Teaksmitty These are words from his article:" He contributed to almost every field of human knowledge then in existence, and he was the founder of many new fields. According to the philosopher Bryan Magee, "it is doubtful whether any human being has ever known as much as he did".[1] Among countless other achievements, Aristotle was the founder of formal logic,[2] pioneered the study of zoology, and left every future scientist and philosopher in his debt through his contributions to the scientific method.[3][4]" Dougweller (talk) 16:14, 6 August 2014 (UTC)
