    The Role of Theory in Unified Psychology.Robert J. Sternberg, Elena L. Grigorenko & David A. Kalmar - 2001 - Journal of Theoretical and Philosophical Psychology 21 (2):99-117.
    Discusses how theory knitting, as proposed by D. A. Kalmar and R. J. Sternberg , can be used to provide a basis for the construction of theory in unified psychology. This article opens first with a brief description of the goals of unified psychology, which is the multiparadigmatic, multidisciplinary, and integrated study of psychological phenomena through converging operations. Second, it briefly provides background on some of the major attempts to unify psychology. Third, the article describes the precepts of unified (...)

    There's More to Teaching Than Instruction: Seven Strategies for Dealing with the Practical Side of Teaching 1.Steven E. Stemler, Julian G. Elliott, Elena L. Grigorenko & Robert J. Sternberg - 2006 - Educational Studies 32 (1):101-118.
    In this paper, we highlight the importance for teachers of having sound practical skills in interacting with students, parents, administrators and other teachers, and argue that the development of such skills is often insufficiently considered in professional training. We then present a new framework for conceptualizing practical skills in dealing with others that follows directly from Sternberg’s theory of successful intelligence. Finally, we outline and discuss an approach to measuring teachers’ preferred strategies for dealing with others that we believe (...)

    Right Answer to the Wrong Question: A Reply to Jung and Haier.Robert J. Sternberg - 2007 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 30 (2):170-171.
    Jung & Haier (J&H) have done an admirable job of solving the wrong problem. Their article does not show because intelligence resides not in the brain but, rather, in the interaction of brain and environment. I describe four reasons why the article does not adequately localize intelligence in the brain.

    Understanding Reasoning: Let's Describe What We Really Think About.Robert J. Sternberg - 2011 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 34 (5):269-270.
    I suggest psychologists would more profitably study a totally different area of human reasoning than is discussed in the target article – the inductive reasoning people use in their everyday life that matters in consequential real-life decision making, rather than the deductive reasoning that psychologists have studied meticulously but that has relatively less ecological relevance to people's lives.

    The Philosophical Roots of Western and Eastern Conceptions of Creativity.Weihua Niu & Robert J. Sternberg - 2006 - Journal of Theoretical and Philosophical Psychology 26 (1-2):18-38.
    This essay reviews the philosophical roots and the development of the concept of creativity in the West and East. In particular, two conceptions of creativity that originated in the West--divinely inspired creativity and individual creativity--are discussed and compared to the two Eastern conceptions of creativity that are rooted in ancient Chinese philosophical thought--natural and individual creativity. Both Western and Eastern conceptions of individual creativity come from a theistic or cosmic tradition of either divinely inspired or natural creativity. However, a defining (...)

    Conceptions of Intelligence in Ancient Chinese Philosophy.Shih-Ying Yang & Robert J. Sternberg - 1997 - Journal of Theoretical and Philosophical Psychology 17 (2):101-119.
    Ancient Chinese philosophical conceptions of intelligence differ markedly from those in the ancient Western tradition, and also from contemporary Western conceptions. Understanding these ancient Chinese conceptions of intelligence may help us better understand how a very important culture—Chinese culture—influences people's thinking and behavior, and may also help us broaden, deepen, as well as re-examine our own conceptions of intelligence. This article reviews two ancient Chinese conceptions of intelligence–the Confucian and Taoist– and discusses their ramifications for current thinking about intelligence and (...)

    Theory Knitting: An Integrative Approach to Theory Development.David A. Kalmar & Robert J. Sternberg - 1988 - Philosophical Psychology 1 (2):153 – 170.
    A close scrutiny of the psychological literature reveals that many psychologists favor a 'segregative' approach to theory development. One theory is pitted against another, and the one that accounts for the data most successfully is deemed the theory of choice. However, an examination of the theoretical debates in which the segregative approach has been pursued reveals a variety of weaknesses to the approach, namely, masking an underlying theoretical indistinguishability of theoretical predictions, causing psychologists to focus unknowingly on different aspects of (...)

    How Rational is the Imagination?Robert J. Sternberg - 2007 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 30 (5-6):467-467.
    Byrne has written a terrific book that is, nevertheless, based on a mistaken assumption – that imagination is largely rational. I argue in this commentary that her book follows very well, if one accepts her assumption of rationality, but that the bulk of the evidence available to us contradicts this assumption.

    An Evolutionary Interpretation of Intelligence, Creativity, and Wisdom: A Link Between the Evolution of Organisms and the Evolution of Ideas.Robert J. Sternberg - 2000 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 23 (1):160-161.
    I show that there is a link between the evolution of organisms and the evolution of ideas. In particular, if conformity is selected for, then mechanisms are needed so that “mutations” of ideas can occur. Creativity acts as a counter-force to conventional intelligence, so that ideas can develop that do not just elaborate existing paradigms, but oppose these paradigms. Sometimes oppositional ideas go too far, however, and wisdom acts as a force to bring the old and the new together. The (...)

    When Reasoning is Persuasive but Wrong.Robert J. Sternberg - 2011 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 34 (2):88-89.
    Mercier and Sperber (M&S) are correct that reasoning and argumentation are closely related. But they are wrong in arguing that this relationship is one of evolutionary adaptation. In fact, persuasive reasoning that is not veridical can be fatal to the individual and to the propagation of his or her genes, as well as to the human species as a whole.

    Is the Illusion of Conscious Will an Illusion?Robert J. Sternberg - 2004 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 27 (5):675-676.
    This book is a tour de force in showing that what we believe to be actions dictated by conscious will are not, in fact, wholly dictated by conscious will. However, Wegner has fallen into the trap of making claims that go beyond his data to make his case more compelling and newsworthy. Psychology needs to be informed by common sense.

    The simple heuristics described in this book are ingenious but are unlikely to be optimally helpful in real-world, consequential, high-stakes decision making, such as mate and job selection. I discuss why the heuristics may not always provide people with such decisions to make with as much enlightenment as they would wish.
