|Method: a method is a procedure agreed on by participants of a discussion or research project. In the case of violations of a method, the comparability of the results is in particular questioned, since these no longer come from a set with uniformly defined properties of the elements._____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them.

Method/VsWatson/Watson: from a methodological standpoint, Watson and Rayner (1920)(1) present us basically with an uncontrolled case demonstration, sometimes referred to as an A-B single case design (i.e., a baseline followed by an intervention). That is, they report the presumed evocation of fear in a single subject and do not provide us any experimental controls for that demonstration. By today’s standards, this report would not likely be published in any top-tier journal. >Method/Behaviorism.
