«I always felt that a scientist owes the world only one thing, and that is the truth as he sees it. If the truth contradicts deeply held beliefs, that is too bad. Tact and diplomacy are fine in international relations, in politics, perhaps even in business; in science only one thing matters, and that is the facts.» H.Eysenck
Любопытные работы у Айзенка есть, надо будет посмотреть:
-A paper in the 1950s concluding that available data «fail to support the hypothesis that psychotherapy facilitates recovery from neurotic disorder».
-A chapter in Uses and Abuses of Psychology (1953) entitled «What is wrong with psychoanalysis».
-Race, Intelligence and Education (1971) (in the US: The IQ Argument)
-Sex, Violence and the Media (1978).
-Astrology — Science or Superstition? (1982)
-Smoking, Personality and Stress (1991)
Да и вообще, персонаж он неоднозначный:
«He also received ‘secret’ funding for ‘consultation research’ via New York legal firm Jacob & Medinger which was acting on behalf of the tobacco industry. Asked what he felt about tobacco industry lawyers being involved in selecting scientists for research projects, he said: «As long as somebody pays for the research I don’t care who it is.» Research should be judged on quality, not on who paid for it, he said, adding that he had not personally profited from the funds.

According to the UK newspaper The Independent, Eysenck received more than £800k in this way (http://www.independent.co.uk/news/eysenck-took-pounds-800000-tobacco-funds-1361007.html) — though, when interviewed by UK’s Channel 4 TV in 1996, he «could not remember exactly the source… » of the money.»
