    Professionalism, Not Professionals.Christopher Meyers, Wendy N. Wyatt, Sandra L. Borden & Edward Wasserman - 2012 - Journal of Mass Media Ethics 27 (3):189-205.
    The proliferation of news and information sources has motivated a need to identify those providing legitimate journalism. One temptation is to go the route of such fields as medicine and law, namely to formally professionalize. This gives a clear method for determining who is a member, with an array of associated responsibilities and rewards. We argue that making such a formal move in journalism is a mistake: Journalism does not meet the traditional criteria, and its core ethos is in conflict (...)

    Rats and Infants as Propositional Reasoners: A Plausible Possibility?Leyre Castro & Edward A. Wasserman - 2009 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 32 (2):203-204.
    Mitchell et al. contemplate the possibility of rats being capable of propositional reasoning. We suggest that this is an unlikely and unsubstantiated possibility. Nonhuman animals and human infants do learn about the contingencies in the world; however, such learning seems not to be based on propositional reasoning, but on more elementary associative processes.

    C Onflict of Interest has Become a Signature Element in the Claim by Internet-Based Commentators to Moral Superiority Over Their Legacy News Media Counterparts. The Insistence of so-Called Mainstream Journalists That They Are Free Not Just of Private Material Entanglements but of Personal Sympathies That Might Tilt Their Reporting and Commentary is Brandished as a Prime Exhibit in the Indictment of the Media Establishment as Hypocritical, Secretly Biased, and Unworthy of Public Trust.Edward Wasserman - 2010 - In Christopher Meyers (ed.), Journalism Ethics: A Philosophical Approach.

  12. Causal Knowledge: What Can Psychology Teach Philosophers.Evan Fales & Edward A. Wasserman - 1992 - Journal of Mind and Behavior 13 (1):1-28.
    Theories of how organisms learn about cause-effect relations have a history dating back at least to the associationist/mechanistic hypothesis of David Hume. Some contemporary theories of causal learning are descendants of Hume's mechanistic models of conditioning, but others impute principled, rule-based reasoning. Since even primitive animals are conditionable, it is clear that there are built-in mechanical algorithms that respond to cause/effect relations. The evidence suggests that humans retain the use of such algorithms, which are surely adaptive when causal judgments must (...)

    Nonhuman Sequence Learning Findings Argue Against Hoerl and McCormack's Two Systems of Temporal Cognition.Benjamin J. De Corte & Edward A. Wasserman - 2019 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 42.
    Hoerl & McCormack propose that animals learn sequences through an entrainment-like process, rather than tracking the temporal addresses of each event in a given sequence. However, past research suggests that animals form “temporal maps” of sequential events and also comprehend the concept of ordinal position. These findings suggest that a clarification or qualification of the authors’ hypothesis is needed.

    Variability in Languages, Variability in Learning?Bob McMurray & Edward Wasserman - 2009 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 32 (5):459-460.
    In documenting the dizzying diversity of human languages, Evans & Levinson (E&L) highlight the lack of universals. This suggests the need for complex learning. Yet, just as there is no universal structure, there may be no universal learning mechanism responsible for language. Language is a behavior assembled by many processes, an assembly guided by the language being learned.

    thought, in general, and – reasoning by analogy, in particular, have been said to reside at the very summit of human cognition. Leech et al. endeavor to comprehend the development of analogous thinking in human beings. Applying Leech et al.'s general approach to the evolution of analogical behavior in animals might also prove to be of considerable value.

    On Possible Discontinuities Between Human and Nonhuman Minds.Edward A. Wasserman - 2008 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 31 (2):151-152.
    The history of comparative psychology is replete with proclamations of human uniqueness. Locke and Morgan denied animals relational thought; Darwin opened the door to that possibility. Penn et al. may be too quick to dismiss the cognitive competences of animals. The developmental precursors to relational thought in humans are not yet known; providing animals those prerequisite experiences may promote more advanced relational thought.
