I'm saying if he was a notable social scientist, he'd be notable for that. Like your Zimbardos or Kinseys or Pavlov. But no one here has ever heard of his research. Because it's not very original or groundbreaking or interesting.He's been published in the APA a handful of times. That would allow me to believe he's somewhat notable in the field.
Are you saying that social sciences like certain fields of Psychology are not based in research? Or are you saying that Peterson does no research?
No, that isn't how science works. The importance of a study isn't based on how much acclaim it gains. Thinking like this led to the replication crisis you mentioned previously. Science that reaffirms the status quote is just as important as a study that changes. Unfortunately, reaffirmation doesn't get all the headlines. Scientists who chased acclaim created weak experiments with the thought in mind to find "specific" results. That's why many studies have been replicated with differing results.
I'll play along though. This study, Between facets and domains: 10 aspects of the Big Five. Has been cited in a little over 900 other studies.
He's only notable because of his pseudo-scientific mythological/philosophical drivel that's capitalized on the rise of reactionary pop-psychology in the current cultural zeitgeist.
Once again, you were the one who posited that he was a "good social scientist."
