In this answer to comments on my target article, social psychology was presented as a nomothetical science. This science needs general, universally accurate theories that will take into account various psychological universals. Sometimes such theories possess features similar to “the theories of the middle range”, whose status and tasks are different in experimental social psychology and in sociology.
Keywords: universality of theory, nomothetical science, theory of the middle range
