Temporal Monthly Distribution of Death Term Paper

Excerpt from Term Paper :



In the first instance there were no control groups or references to studies that showed possible alternative results from the same sample group. The argument can therefore be criticized for being far too spurious and general with little clear definition of terms.

Furthermore it must be mentioned that the argument itself is not always clear and well expressed and there is very little effort to show consistency between some of the findings. For example the connection between geophysical aspects and both homicide and suicide is based on a very little reference to other studies or to any factual and consistent evidence.

Summary and Conclusion

The above article has both positive and negative aspects. From a positive point-of-view the investigation of a rather unorthodox theory about extreme human behavior is to be applauded. There is some proof and evidence that geophysical aspects can and do have an influence on human behavior. It is also important in science not to become closed to other possibilities and theories and this is a theory or hypothesis may have great value for the understanding human behavior. It can also have a profound influence on understanding aspects of society such as of criminal behavior and other psychological and sociological aspects of human behavior.

On the other hand, scientific papers and research must adhere to certain standards of verifiability and reliability. Unfortunately the paper under discussion does not always achieve these standards. As has been discussed in this analysis, more attention should have been given to defining variables and to alternative views and studies that may have added depth and substance to the study.
