Origins and Future of Control Theory in Psychology

Hi Folks,

Remember our debate with the APA Dictionary a while back (Thanks Richard Pfau!), culminating in a complete change to the origins of control theory in psychology that vindicated Bill’s work?

Well Rick and myself have now published a paper that does the rest of the job… in an APA journal…

RM: I think Warren can distribute copies if he gets a “request for reprints”. I only have a copy of the final proof but I’d be happy to make that available if Warren thinks it’s OK.
