I have examined them fairly often, and whether out of personal prejudice or out of conviction I must refuse to admit that they are in essence obscurantist principles. We have just passed through a period of classicism in English poetry which has no parallel in American work, except where that work has felt the influence of English writers, and we have seen a few of its limitations. History has driven us from classicism to romanticism, and the migration has been almost universal among sensitive writers. I am surprised that Fromm The Fear of Freedom and other psychologists do not make more of this.
The fear of death is probably at root the fear of isolation, rather than of a cessation of experience. Total isolation is reached only in 'deteriorated' schizophrenia and in death, but one of the chief artistic grounds for attacking contemporary societies is that they produce a false sense of community while, in reality, they destroy the individual's true relation with his fellows and substitute a relationship to a fictitious dummy, the Group.

Singularly enough, some critics again attempt to depict this view as a form of religious mysticism, largely because it uses the term 'human nature' and discusses the relationship of man to the universe. Except in so far as philosophical pessimism is a 'religion', it is difficult to see in what way a romantic interpretation of history is any more 'religious' than a Marxist or physiochemical interpretation.
It certainly rejects every form of supernaturalism. As to Whitehead's conception of romanticism as a revolt against science, the romantic conception of metaphysics and politics is constituted in the same way as any scientific hypothesis - by reference to the observed facts of history or of psychology.

But firms already do lots of user research. Surveys, focus groups and usability tests abound. The problem isn't with the quantity of user research. It has obvious face validity.
It makes so much sense. Nearly 40 years ago, psychologists Richard Nisbett and Timothy Wilson carried out some research outside a bargain store in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

All the pairs of stockings were identical. The reason most people preferred D was simply a position effect: the researchers knew that people show a marked preference for items on the right side of a display. But when the researchers asked people why they preferred the stockings that they chose, no-one pointed to the position effect.
Ethical Socialism? No, Thanks!
People said their chosen pair had a superior knit, or more sheerness or elasticity. The researchers even asked people if they may have been influenced by the order of the items, but of course people looked at the researchers like they were bonkers. Instead, people confabulated: they made up plausible reasons for their choice. Asking direct questions will encourage confabulation, not tell you what is actually going on. There are two ways to observe.

We can observe how people solve the problem now. Or we can teleport people to the future and get them using your solution a prototype to see where the issues will arise. Surveys are so much fun! Perhaps because we hear about surveys every day in the news, people tend to think of them as being more reliable or useful.
Site visits and customer interviews are a great way to get insights into your users needs, goals and behaviours. Site visits and customer interviews give you signposts, not definitive answers. There may be some patterns in the data, but these aren't as useful as the conversation you have with users and the things you observe them do.
This is because a gap between what people say and what they do is often a design opportunity. But there comes a point when you need to validate your findings from site visits and customer interviews. Quantitative data tells us WHAT people are doing. Qualitative data tells us WHY people are doing it.
