Research Interests for Lise Wallach

Research Interests: Theoretical Psychology and Philosophy of Psychology

The main areas of my previous research are Piagetian conservation, poor children's reading difficulties, altruism and ethics, and philosophical-methodological problems in social psychological experiments. Currently I am concerned with different views of mind and possible ways of resolving the issues among them.
