A recent article by Ed Diener, Shigehire Oishi and Jung Y eun Park, reported the results of an analysis of the citation impact, textbook citations and major scientific awards to identify what they termed the “eminent psychologists of the modern era (post World WarII).” Among those listed were Allan R. Wagner and, more notably, three of the alumni of his laboratory of whom he is appropriately proud, Michael Davis, Carol Dweck and Anthony Greenwald. The article is available as:
Diener, E., Oishi, S., and Park, J. Y. (2014) An Incomplete List of Eminent Psychologists of the Modern Era. Archives of Scientific Psychology, 2, 20-32.
The living members of the listed group were invited to prepare a 1500 word description of their major work, accessible to undergraduates. The Wagner chapter will appear as follows:
