Are Effect Sizes in Psychology Meaningless?

"A new paper from Nick J. Broers of Maastricht University argues that the size of the effects measured in psychology experiments is essentially meaningless...according to Broers, there is a fundamental problem with interpreting effect sizes in psychology. The problem is that very few psychological theories predict any specific effect size, and if theories don't predict effect sizes, effect sizes can't be used to judge the validity of theories."
