If psychology has to do with questions that can be answered with the methods of science, those examined here belong to philosophy.

They include: the mind-body problem, metaphysics, reification, explanation, causality, theory, laws and principles, anthromorphism, purpose, freedom, knowledge, induction, and the fact-value problem. So far, none of them has been reduced to measurement and that is why they remain problems of philosophy and psychology.

There are at least thirteen problems in psychology that are not likely to be solved with the methods of science as they are currently understood. They include: the mind-body problem, metaphysics, reification, explanation, causality, theory, laws and principles, anthropomorphism, purpose, freedom, knowledge, induction, and the fact-value problem. None of them, so far, has been reduced to measurement and that is why they remain problems of philosophy and psychology.
Jay Eacker is now a professor emeritus of psychology who taught college courses in introductory psychology, applied and experimental analysis of behavior, and the history of psychology for over thirty years.
