Early in 1986 I invited Professor Robinson to collaborate on a quantity of the Annals dedicated to the topic of the 'person' in psychology. He approved my invitation later that 12 months suggesting, in its place, that the quantity be dedicated to the subject of clarification in psychology. I gladly compromised for, as I knew from his exterisive writings at the heritage and philosophy of psychology, the idea that of rationalization is firmly rooted in philosophical anthropology. The contributions by way of Rom Harre, James Lamiell, Joseph Margolis, and George Miller have been to be had in June, 1988, and the commentaries and replies to commentaries early in 1989. thankfully, foundational papers put on good, because the content material of the current quantity so aptly testifies. starting with quantity 6, the Annals can be solely edited and ready utilizing the pc amenities at our heart. because of the committed attempt of my colleague, Professor William Baker, this can be the 1st quantity made out of camera-ready replica. His own aid and technical services made the transition to desk-top publishing a little bit under bold. Mrs. Valerie Welch, our heart secretary, entered the textual content and controlled my own correspondence; Casey Boodt proofread the total manuscript; and the college of Alberta keeps to aid my involvement with this sequence. Dan Robinson's dedication to scholarship additionally extends to the extra mundane job of modifying. each quantity with a co-editor is a problem; he made this one a delight.
