## The hypotheses of interest in an ANOVA are as follows:

There are many questions, though, concerning the theory of permutations. For example, is the affirmative actually arguing in favor of doing the permutation or are they merely using it as a hypothetical illustration? Does the permutation need to be non-topical? Is it abusive to propose five or six permutations to the same counterplan (as some affirmatives have done)? Are permutations inherently abusive, since almost all counterplans are susceptible to some permutation or another? Do permutations encourage sloppy thinking on the affirmative's part, since they get to sort of rewrite the plan in the middle of the round?

I chose the "secure" infant to serve as an example ofan individual who relates to others with confidence and ease as a result of a sensitiveand responsive caregiver.

## Criticism of the Hypothesis-testing Paradigm

Finally, a common objection has it that the universality of doubtundermines the method of doubt *itself*, since, for example,the sceptical hypotheses themselves are so dubious. Descartes thinksthis misses the point of the method: namely, to extend doubt universally to*candidates for Knowledge*, but not also to the very tools forfounding Knowledge. As he concedes: “there may be reasonswhich are strong enough to compel us to doubt, even though thesereasons are themselves doubtful, and hence are not to be retained lateron” (Replies 7, AT 7:473–74).

## The Basic Principles of the Scientific Method

I must retort that the securely attached infant is emphasized as an"example of the development of personality" as a result of the bond formed between themother and the child during infancy.

The ANOVA tests described above are called one-factor ANOVAs. There is one treatment or grouping factor with k__>__2 levels and we wish to compare the means across the different categories of this factor. The factor might represent different diets, different classifications of risk for disease (e.g., osteoporosis), different medical treatments, different age groups, or different racial/ethnic groups. There are situations where it may be of interest to compare means of a continuous outcome across two or more factors. For example, suppose a clinical trial is designed to compare five different treatments for joint pain in patients with osteoarthritis. Investigators might also hypothesize that there are differences in the outcome by sex. This is an example of a two-factor ANOVA where the factors are treatment (with 5 levels) and sex (with 2 levels). In the two-factor ANOVA, investigators can assess whether there are differences in means due to the treatment, by sex or whether there is a difference in outcomes by the combination or interaction of treatment and sex. Higher order ANOVAs are conducted in the same way as one-factor ANOVAs presented here and the computations are again organized in ANOVA tables with more rows to distinguish the different sources of variation (e.g., between treatments, between men and women). The following example illustrates the approach.

Thus, if the hypothesis is correct, the Barrow scale, and more generally, STEM efficiency, STEM density, and computational growth scales would be much more appropriate measures of civilization development.
