I highly recommend reading Zoltan Dienes' book on Understanding Psychology as a Science (also for non-psych!). One of the best books on philosophy of science, falsification, and different approaches to statistics: Absolutely a must read.     source

This is a dual appreciation tweet of 1) The book Theory Building by Dubin from 1969, which I highly recommend reading, and 2) the fact I could borrow it for free online from @internetarchive which is amazing (I'll return the book in 10 days if you want it)     source
