From Our Editors

Behaviourism is crucial to the way we understand the way humans conduct themselves, both inwardly and outwardly. It questions the science and psychology that tries to deconstruct our behaviour and asks: Is such a science really possible? Can it account for every aspect of the way we act? B. F. Skinner a veritable Plato of the field, helps weigh all the questions that fall from the study. About Behaviorism is the best introduction students and scholars could have to this fascinating realm. It uses psychological positions to counter popular theorems, adding provocative depth to a complex issue.

Rule, Newsday"The battle over Skinner's ideas is just beginning. It promises to be one of the most interesting contests of our generation."-- Gail Boyer, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
