  Abstract Comments on articles by Kruglanski et al (see record 2006-21595-001), Roland Deutsch and Fritz Strack (see record 2006-21595-002), and Jeffrey W. Sherman (see record 2006-21595-003). All three attempts at process models in social psychology are appreciated. All of them try to find a solution to the problem that lies at the heart of psychology: to fill the gap between the description of human beings as individuals who intentionally act (and judge) according to their beliefs and goals, and the description of human beings as biological systems that behave according to inbuilt or acquired regularities. Deutsch and Strack's approach is clearly driven by the goal to reconcile the personal psychology of judgments with the automatic processes that moderate judgments. Kruglanski and colleagues attempt to paint an “as if” picture. They draw heavily on the idea of production system architectures in computer science. The Quad Model of Sherman focuses on a somewhat different spot in the research process. With the multinomial model, Sherman tries to separate automatic and controlled components of measurement tools. We appreciate the fundamental discussion in these contributions, because most of the time we psychologists suppress, circumvent, or ignore this gap by focusing solely on one or the other side of the gap.
