    My rating of this book is a bit biased I give it full marks because Michael H Long basically saved my research proposal at an Applied Linguistics program I wont go into detail but it changed my perspective uite a bit Both this book and other publications of his opened my eyes into what a Second Language Acuisition theory should cover and how theory proliferation is affecting the field It takes its title from Laudan's idea of science being a problem solving activity and tries to place the same rigor to this linguistic areaI read the first two chapters fully and skipped through the parts of Part II Research I was interested in this lead me to seek other authors and distracted me into other publications on the Critical Period Hypothesis I will probably have to either buy or take out this book from the library again soon
