Other Current Positions

Psychologist on the Italian Rolls.

Member, ABA International.

Member, Cambridge Center for Behavioral Studies.

Member of the Editorial Board of Behavior and Philosophy, Journal published by the Cambridge Center for Behavioral Studies.

Research Interests

His primary research focuses are:

-

the integration of the social sciences (especially economics, behavioristic psychology and sociology);

-

 

the extension of the experimental method to the study of man and society;
-

 

the definition of the parameters which allow the translatability among the languages explaining behavior from different perspectives.

His scientific activities concern: the methodology of social sciences and the experimental analysis of behavior; the scientific study of social interaction using the theory of interests to explicate the conflict and the cooperation, the structure of power, the structure of social exchange, the concept of organization and the main social phenomena (social classes, pluralism and collectivism, the dynamics of organizations, deviant social behaviors and the punishment, values and ideologies, market and institutions); the socio-economic problems and conditions of transition from underdeveloped to developed situations.

He is also interested in learning processes and teaching methods (particularly with reference to psychological variables of learning and change of attitudes),computer aided programmed instruction and distance learning.
