  1. Embodied Cognition, Representationalism, and Mechanism: A Review and Analysis.Jonathan S. Spackman & Stephen C. Yanchar - 2014 - Journal for the Theory of Social Behaviour 44 (1):46-79.
    Embodied cognition has attracted significant attention within cognitive science and related fields in recent years. It is most noteworthy for its emphasis on the inextricable connection between mental functioning and embodied activity and thus for its departure from standard cognitive science's implicit commitment to the unembodied mind. This article offers a review of embodied cognition's recent empirical and theoretical contributions and suggests how this movement has moved beyond standard cognitive science. The article then clarifies important respects in which embodied cognition (...)

    Character Education in a Public High School: A Multi-Year Inquiry Into Unified Studies.David D. Williams, Stephen C. Yanchar, Larry C. Jensen & Cheryl Lewis - 2003 - Journal of Moral Education 32 (1):3-33.
    This article describes how a unique high school programme, not formally designed to teach moral principles or character lessons, contributed substantially to the character education of its students. Graduates over 20 years old were interviewed ( n =106) and completed a questionnaire ( n =204). Findings suggest the programme teachers helped students develop character attributes by providing a desirable character education environment. A majority of students reported that the programme was personalised, practical and, in many cases, life changing. A majority (...)

    Fragmentation in Focus: History, Integration, and the Project of Evaluation.Stephen C. Yanchar - 1997 - Journal of Theoretical and Philosophical Psychology 17 (2):150-170.
    This paper discusses the fragmentation of psychology and proposals for unification hitherto proffered. It is argued that unity will not be achieved until competing ideas regarding morality, ontology, epistemology, and so forth are critically examined and evaluated. Ideas that pass theoretical muster and that cohere with human moral interests will provide a theoretical starting point for unification efforts. 2012 APA, all rights reserved).

    Irreducible Ethics: A Defense of Strenuousness and Responsibility.Edwin E. Gantt & Stephen C. Yanchar - 2007 - Journal of Theoretical and Philosophical Psychology 27 (1):35-52.
    This paper critiques the reduction of the significance of human moral action to mere social construction and suggests two perspectives that resist this theoretical maneuver. It is argued that any school of thought within psychology that cannot provide an adequate account of ethics and moral action ultimately fails as a psychology. This paper examines the social constructionist claims of Kenneth Gergen and others, arguing that, because it undermines the possibility of a meaningful morality by ushering in a form of nihilism, (...)

    Review of Constructing the Subject: Historical Origins of Psychological Research. [REVIEW]Stephen C. Yanchar - 1997 - Journal of Theoretical and Philosophical Psychology 17 (2):171-176.
    Reviews the book, Constructing the subject: Historical origins of psychological research by Kurt Danziger . Kurt Danziger's Constructing the Subject: Historical Origins of Psychological Research is a book of singular importance because it provides such a penetrating analysis, and does so in a manner that is cause for considerable reflection. In brief, Danziger provides a history lesson that not only situates the names and the projects of experimental psychology in the first part of this century, but also aims to clarify (...)

    Moral Complexities of Student Question-Asking in Classroom Practice.Stephen C. Yanchar & Susan P. Gong - 2020 - Phenomenology and Practice 15 (2):73-99.
    Prior research on student question-asking has primarily been conducted from a cognitive, epistemological standpoint. In contrast, we present a hermeneutic-phenomenological investigation that emphasizes the moral-practical context in which question-asking functions as a situated way of being in the midst of practice. More particularly, we present a hermeneutic study of student question-asking in a graduate seminar on design theory. The study offers a unique moral-practical perspective on this commonly studied phenomenon. Our analysis yielded four themes regarding the moral-practical intricacies of question-asking (...)

    Notes on a Naturalized Epistemology.Stephen C. Yanchar & Kristoffer B. Kristensen - 1996 - Journal of Theoretical and Philosophical Psychology 16 (2):93-102.
    Comments on L. T. Hoshmand & J. Martin's (see record 1995-28533-001) proposal for providing unity in psychological science. Hoshmand and Martin suggest that psychology may derive its own naturalized epistemology by studying and describing the activities in which psychologists are currently engaged, find successful, and how it is that they historically arrived at these practices. While Hoshmand and Martin's notion that an historico-descriptive analysis may be helpful for the study of psychology is not rejected, it is argued that a critical (...)

    On Starting Points and Priorities: A Rejoinder.Stephen C. Yanchar & Kristoffer B. Kristensen - 1996 - Journal of Theoretical and Philosophical Psychology 16 (2):111-122.
    Responds to the reply by L. T. Hoshmand and J. Martin to S. C. Yanchar and K. B. Kristensen's comments on Hoshmand and Martin's proposal for a naturalistic epistemological approach to psychological science. Hoshmand and Martin argue that in Yanchar and Kristensen's stance toward some aspects of their proposal, they have attributed to Hoshmand and Martin a relationship between theory, method, and data that they do not hold. According to Hoshmand and Martin, in making their case Yanchar and Kristensen have (...)

    Review of Behavior and Personality: Psychological Behaviorism. [REVIEW]Stephen C. Yanchar - 1998 - Journal of Theoretical and Philosophical Psychology 18 (1):61-69.
    Reviews the book, Behavior and personality: Psychological behaviorism by Arthur W. Staats . Staats' latest book provides a brief introduction to his philosophy of science known as unified positivism and a comprehensive review of his specific theory known as psychological behaviorism . Readers unfamiliar with Staats' work can, through this book, become acquainted with his earnest, if not somewhat totalitarian, strategy for uniting psychology under a single theoretical framework. Although Staats' earlier publications provide a more clear and accessible exposition of (...)
