By examining the diversity of philosophies of science, the assumption that there is a single scientist-practitioner model is questioned. A variety of philosophies of science are reviewed and the modes of practice and training that flow from the different approaches are considered. The conclusion is drawn that to use the term scientist-practitioner without identifying the associated philosophy of science permits individuals and institutions to obscure fundamentally different (and sometimes incompatible) approaches to psychology.
