Feynman's "Cargo Cult Science" essay is kind of an ideé fixe for me (even though I'm in a school of education and that's basically the first academic field he attacks in it). So of course it came to mind while I was sitting in a class where we were discussing some articles whose "scientific" explanations of human behavior struck me as cockamamie. And I kind of wished Feynman was there, so he could say it and I wouldn't have to.
