These kinds of relationships, however, cannot usually be studied experimentally but require historical investigation. Even the above distinction between those effects that depend on investigators' interactions with their research subjects and those that depend on their interactions with their colleagues breaks down historically at a time when research subjects and colleagues are the same. The very late and very partial recognition on the part of psychologists that there is anything at all social about their research activity is not so surprising when one considers the categories in terms of which they think and communicate about their own practice.

Categories of people are far from being the only kind of psychological object. At least as important are the categories in terms of which psychology organizes its subject matter. Such categories as 'learning', 'motivation', 'intelligence', 'behavior', 'personality', and so forth are not 'natural kinds' but are posited specifically as the objects of psychological investi- 2 • Psychological Objects, Practice, and History 2S gation and intervention. Of course, any of these terms can be used in contexts other than that of psychological investigation, but a glance at a good dictionary followed by a brief perusal of some of the relevant psychological research literature would be enough to convince anyone who still needs convincing that the objects addressed by psychological research are not the same as the objects posited by the categories of lay discourse.

This process also is governed by strict rules that have nevertheless seen considerable historical modification. Needless to say, investigators' knowledge of these rules in large measure determines what aspects of the investigative interaction are considered worth recording and, therefore, worth eliciting. For instance, an investigator who knows that lengthy introspective reports are not publishable is not likely to ask for them or to take them seriously as recorded data if they are spontaneously offered.
