Handlungspsychologie: Vom Experimentieren mit Perspektiven zu Perspektiven fürs Experimentieren. = Psychology of action: From experiments on future perspectives to future perspectives for experiments

Zeitschrift für Sozialpsychologie, 16(3):153-181.

States that current experimental research does not fully exploit the heuristic power of psychological theories of action. The paucity of experimental research guided by action-theoretical approaches is partly attributed to the impact of several metatheoretical positions according to which many elements of action theories are not amenable to experimental testing. Four theories of action are discussed, and experimental research suggested by each of these approaches is illustrated. Typical problems arising when complex theories are tested empirically are also considered. (English abstract) (4 p ref) (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2016 APA, all rights reserved)
