The Evolution of Scientific Skepticism in the Media Violence “Debate”

The Evolution of Scientific Skepticism in the Media Violence “Debate” After 60 years of research on media violence and aggression, the scientifically skeptical positions have evolved. This article examines some of the reasons why this issue continues to be a difficult one, and argues that, after examining the preponderance of data, the interesting skeptical questions are: (1) How can we put the pieces of the puzzle back together, given humans’ inherent complexity? (2) How do differing perspectives affect the interpretation of the data? Questions such as these may help to move past the polarizing rhetoric that has characterized much of the recent debate. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Analyses of Social Issues & Public Policy Wiley

Abstract

After 60 years of research on media violence and aggression, the scientifically skeptical positions have evolved. This article examines some of the reasons why this issue continues to be a difficult one, and argues that, after examining the preponderance of data, the interesting skeptical questions are: (1) How can we put the pieces of the puzzle back together, given humans’ inherent complexity? (2) How do differing perspectives affect the interpretation of the data? Questions such as these may help to move past the polarizing rhetoric that has characterized much of the recent debate.
