    Towards a Balanced Social Psychology: Causes, Consequences, and Cures for the Problem-Seeking Approach to Social Behavior and Cognition.Joachim I. Krueger & David C. Funder - 2004 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 27 (3):313-327.
    Mainstream social psychology focuses on how people characteristically violate norms of action through social misbehaviors such as conformity with false majority judgments, destructive obedience, and failures to help those in need. Likewise, they are seen to violate norms of reasoning through cognitive errors such as misuse of social information, self-enhancement, and an over-readiness to attribute dispositional characteristics. The causes of this negative research emphasis include the apparent informativeness of norm violation, the status of good behavior and judgment as unconfirmable null (...)

    Experimental Psychology Cannot Solve the Problem of Conscious Will (yet We Must Try).Joachim I. Krueger - 2004 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 27 (5):668-669.
    According to the view that humans are conscious automata, the experience of conscious will is illusory. Epistemic theories of causation, however, make room for causal will, planned behavior, and moral action.

    Social Psychology: A Field in Search of a Center.Joachim I. Krueger & David C. Funder - 2004 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 27 (3):361-367.
    Many commentators agree with our view that the problem-oriented approach to social psychology has not fulfilled its promise, and they suggest new research directions that may contribute to the maturation of the field. Others suggest that social psychology is not as focused on negative phenomena as we claim, or that a negative focus does indeed lay the most efficient path toward a general understanding of social cognition and behavior. In this response, we organize the comments thematically, discuss them in light (...)

    Why Cooperate? Social Projection as a Cognitive Mechanism That Helps Us Do Good.Joachim I. Krueger & Melissa Acevedo - 2002 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 25 (2):266-266.
    The mother sacrificing herself while rescuing someone else's child is a red herring. Neither behaviorism nor cognitivism can explain it. Unlike behaviorism, however, the cognitive process of projection can explain cooperation in one-shot social dilemmas.

    The Flight From Reasoning in Psychology.Joachim I. Krueger - 2007 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 30 (1):32-33.
    Psychological science can benefit from a theoretical unification with other social sciences. Social psychology in particular has gone through cycles of repression, denying itself the opportunity to see the calculating element in human interaction. A closer alignment with theories of evolution and theories of interpersonal (and intergroup) games would bring strategic reasoning back into the focus of research. (Published Online April 27 2007).

    Wanted: A Reconciliation of Rationality with Determinism.Joachim I. Krueger - 2003 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 26 (2):168-169.
    In social dilemmas, expectations of reciprocity can lead to fully determined cooperation concurrent with the illusion of choice. The choice of the dominant alternative (i.e., defection) may be construed as being free and rational, but only at the cost of being incompatible with a behavioral science claiming to be deterministic.
