Richard Shiffrin, Indiana University: "How many processes are there in the mind?" 

Brief abstract:  A good deal of the research carried out in cognitive psychology, if not psychology generally, is aimed at deciding whether one, two, or perhaps three processes govern behavior. I will discuss whether and how such a question makes sense, will critically evaluate methods used to make the choice, and will use examples largely taken from my own research, since at various times I have taken every side of such debates, sometimes favoring fewer processes, sometimes more.
