Under other conditions, thinking of light as waves makes better predictions (Bhuiyan, 2011). For the contextualist, no time need be spent concerning oneself with whether or not light is a wave or a particle. One adopts the most fruitful language given the context. Of course, striving for precision, scope, and parsimony, the contextualist would value the development of a single way of speaking that was effective in both experimental conditions. However, even if successful, she would not conclude that this new language mirrored reality or referred to the “true” state of the world.

However, descriptive contextualism differs in that its ultimate goals are not the prediction and influence of analyzed events, but instead an active personal appreciation of the functional relation between context and analyzed action. Examples of such efforts in psychology include dramaturgy, narrative psychology, and hermeneutics (Hayes, 1993). Our comments here will be restricted to functional Advances in Relational Frame Theory contextualism because the focus of this volume is not consonant with a descriptive contextualist analysis.
