Abstract

My paper is hardly intended to be the "last word" on the subject. My paper is merely intended to be a cautionary tale. I also hoped to recover the "small world" problem for psychologists, who might be curious as to why people are so eager to believe that we do live in a "small, small world." The small world problem appears to have disappeared from introductory psychology textbooks, I learned. We psychologists need to take it back.
