  1. George S. Howard & Cody D. Christopherson (2009). Pluralism: An Antidote for Fanaticism, the Delusion of Our Age. Journal of Mind and Behavior 30 (3):139-147.
    William James’s pluralism, when combined with his pragmatism and radical empiricism, is a complete and coherent philosophy of life. James provides an antidote to the excesses of both the extreme realist/objectivist and the extreme constructivist/relativist camps. In this paper, we demonstrate how this is so in a discussion of epistemology and ontology including several extended examples. These examples demonstrate the inescapability of context and background assumptions and the advantages of a pluralist worldview.

    Suggests that the papers by B. D. Slife , M. Gergen , R. N. Williams , and M. S. Richardson demonstrated no simple solution to the free will problem. How humans achieve some limited exercise of FW in a world of nonagentic, coercive forces remains unclear, especially as human nature and lives represent complex phenomena in which the person who exercises FW is anything but omnipotent, ahistorical, self-contained, and acultural. 2012 APA, all rights reserved).

  4. George S. Howard (1994). Some Varieties of Free Will Worth Practicing. Journal of Theoretical and Philosophical Psychology 14 (1):50-61.
    Discusses freedom of will as being agentically independent of nonagentic coercion in actions and as choosing how to become faithfully interdependent. Recent experimental developments that demonstrated the causal force of the will in human actions reveal a picture of human action as partially self-determined and partially caused by nonagentic causal influences acting upon these agents. A 2nd manner of influence is when humans choose to become faithfully interdependent by becoming a believer in any number of foundational stories that give meaning (...)

  7. George S. Howard (1993). When Psychology Looks Like a "Soft" Science, It's for Good Reasonp. Journal of Theoretical and Philosophical Psychology 13 (1):42-47.
    The natural sciences are sometimes called "hard" sciences in contrast to the social sciences , which are thought to represent "soft" sciences. L. V. Hedges made an important effort to determine the empirical cumulativeness of various scientific research programs, with an eye toward assessing if this criterion is related to a discipline's "hardness" or "softness." This article discusses another criterion, a research program's predictive accuracy, that might also be considered along with a program's empirical cumulativeness. Finally, recent improvements in the (...)

  8. George S. Howard (1992). No Middle Voice. Theoretical and Philosophical Psychology 12 (1):12-26.
    Discusses the Whorf-Sapir hypothesis, which maintains that nature be dissected along the lines laid down by native language. One characteristic of most modern languages is that subject–verb relationships can be expressed only in active and passive voices . Modern languages might force people into dichotomous thinking patterns, since human action is couched primarily in one voice or the other. Throughout history, several languages have possessed middle voices which allow for a more complex relationship between a subject and verb than can (...)
