This article aims to concisely describe J.L. Moreno’s philosophy of experimental design and scientific method. Sociometry is central to Moreno’s social science and six principles that guide sociometric research are described. Moreno’s social research methods have a solid place in Moreno’s work and are a major contribution to social science. Greater consciousness of Moreno’s scientific approach will strengthen and extend the psychodramatic methods, social experiments and foster ethical social change.
