About this book

This book offers an analysis of experimental psychology that is embedded in a general understanding of human behavior. It provides methodological self-awareness for researchers who study and use the experimental method in psychology. The book critically reviews key research areas (e.g., rule-breaking, sense of agency, free choice, task switching, task sharing, and mind wandering), examining their scope, limits, ambiguities, and implicit theoretical commitments.

Topics featured in this text include: 

  • Methods of critique in experimental research
  • Goal hierarchies and organization of a task
  • Rule-following and rule-breaking behavior
  • Sense of agency
  • Free-choice tasks
  • Mind wandering

Experimental Psychology and Human Agency will be of interest to researchers and undergraduate and graduate students in the fields of experimental psychology, cognitive psychology, theoretical psychology, and critical psychology, as well as various philosophical disciplines.
