When you wish to produce aproduct, then you do those activities which are known to  produce that outcome. When you have a particular goal or destination in mind, you  take the path that is known to go in that direction. If you want to be ethical and  pragmatic, then be "scientific." Few people would articulate their onus as “I want to  be empirical.” But, most would say that they want to be ethical, and then go on to  say that to be ethical is to base their practice of psychology on the truth; and  further, that the “truth” is that which can be seen or felt in person. This section of  Chapter 1 can be seen as having been the elaboration of what it actually means to  say you want to be ethical and pragmatic.
