Replicability in science: myth or reality? - Replicability, which is generally considered one of the cornerstones of true science, far from being an obvious precondition for any experimental investigation is often a difficult achievement requiring a sufficient knowledge of the phenomenon under study. Moreover, the degree of replicability depends on the objects and/or phenomena under investigation. Even in physics, often considered a paradigmatic "hard science", the level of reproducibility is often problematic and, in any case, it depends on the type of phenomena and on the level of their description. The problem of reproducibility is entangled with scientific methodology, in particular with induction and abduction. The theory of demarcation between science and non science is hard to clarify, and it is particularly critical for disciplines, generally indicated as "soft sciences" or "humanities", that include some aspects of psychology and psychotherapy. [KEY WORDS: replicability, scientific method, induction, abduction, psychology]
