Once Upon a Time Once upon a time, I was a psychology Major at Murray State University, which has now been relegated to “long ago”. I had a professor by the name of Alisha Ritter who was the resident PHD over introduction to research. Lecturing wise, Dr. Ritter was very polished. When it came to the epistemology of the basics, though, we had some disagreements. Though Dr. Ritter was right from an academic standpoint, she was wrong in a philosophical sense.
