Lindeman's artistic stream concerns intuition and relates to how adults learn. Think of methodology to understand the role of intuition in learning. Thorndike's scientific stream uses rigorous investigation to discover new knowledge. Think of the Large Hadron Collider experiment at CERN to understand rigorous investigation. Thorndike's stream focused on adult learning ability, not on adult learning processes.
