The paper attempts to discuss the way experiments are conducted in modern social psychology. It is argued that psychologists are more concentrated on methods than on theoretical ideas and hypotheses. Besides, current social psychology is focused on beliefs and judgments (e.g. stereotypes and attitudes) rather than on human behavioral reactions (e.g. altruism or aggression).
