A reflection on the method of research into curiosity

Robert Henman
This article reviews literature on some of the methods used in current research on human curiosity and attempts to reveal some of the problems related to objectivity, naïve realism, positivism and scientific verification. It raises also the question as to what scientists mean by empirical. 
In doing so, solutions to these problems are offered in terms of the needed construct that would transform present methods towards an adequate scientific approach to human research.
Method, curiosity, research, interiority, data of consciousness
