ABSTRACT
Although research workers have often speculated on the possibility of using quantitative methods to test the validity of psychoanalytic theories, few have undertaken such studies. Since the emphasis in Professor Robert F. Winch's present paper has been upon findings relating degree of courtship behavior to social and psychological background factors, the results can be evaluated primarily within the framework of socio-psychological and statistical theory. This is interesting that these findings are so largely in accord with what would have been anticipated, had one postulated that culturally-contained family types operate as determinants of courtship behavior. The author's disavowal that such a postulate was made at the outset of the study strengthens the confidence one can place in the validity of the pattern evident in his findings. Examination of the data of correlation coefficients reveals that most of these values are not statistically significant, and that the significant coefficients are for the most part low.
