    People Actually Are About as Bad as Social Psychologists Say, or Worse.Michael P. Maratsos - 2004 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 27 (3):351-352.
    Experimental studies are not representative of how badly people function. We study people under relatively innocuous conditions, where their self-interests are very low. In the real world, where people's self-interests are much higher, people are much worse a good deal of the time (some illustrations are cited). This is often “adaptive” for the perpetrators, but that doesn't make it “good” behavior. That people function so badly in our experiments, where self-interest is relatively minimal, is what is really terrifying.

    We Should Not Impose Narrow Restrictions on Psychological Methods.Michael Maratsos - 2001 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 24 (3):422-423.
    Hertwig and Ortmann suggest greater standardization of procedures in experimental psychology to help with problems of replicability and consistency of findings. It is argued that, (a) this view is inconsistent with their other interesting proposals, and (b) heterogeneity of method is appropriate in psychology.

    How Fast Does a Child Learn a Word?Michael Maratsos - 2001 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 24 (6):1111-1112.
    This discussion argues that for many word meanings, the child has to assemble a new category, using relatively slow information-sifting processes. This does not cause high semantic errors, because children probably hold off using a word until much such sifting has occurred, rather than producing the new word as soon as they have any information on it.
