By who to whom? `Commentary on the article 
by Tomasz Witkowski and Paweł Fortuna:  
On psycho-business, tolerance and responsibility 
or strategies employed by pure scientists

Wiesław Łukaszewski
Higher School of Social Psychology


Abstract
The author of the commentary argues that both the provocation that introduced the bogus therapy as a new therapeutic procedure in the popular magazine, and the commented article are based on false assumptions, namely: (a) that social practice must have a scientific background; (b) that any activity that is not based on scientific premises is immoral; ( c) that the goal of scientists is to expose the missing theoretical premises of social practice. The provocation, despite the good intentions of the author, was conducted in a way which goes against its goal, that is, increasing the intellectual and moral vigilance of academic psychologists.

Key words: abuse in psychology, moral responsibility
