Found this really useful for my TOK essay! I'm using psychology and biology; what would you guys consider a "counter-argument" for biology, given that you guys say that replication is necessary in it?
When you think about counter arguments, it does not necessarily need to be the exact opposite - but perhaps if you think about the limitations of replicability in something like biology you will find plenty to explore about when it might not be as necessary, or perhaps when it just might not be possible and therefore Biologists must find another way to validate their ideas.
