Mr Alan Porter

My main interest is in the genealogy of psychological theories. I am currently working on a textbook that will help undergraduate psychology students understand the historical/philosophical background of current theoretical and methodological disputes and controversies in the social/behavioural sciences. I am particularly interested in trying to understand where social psychology is positioned in these disputes and controversies.

I also have a long standing interest in the psychology of learning and teaching. I have conducted research in the areas of learning styles, student expectations and student approaches to studying.
