Behaviorism by John B Watson( Book )

214 editions published between 1924 and 2014 in 9 languages and held by 3,542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two opposing points of view which are still present in American psychological thinking today, introspective or subjective psychology, and behaviorism or objective. Reacting against an emphasis on feelings and introspection, and its lack of precise categories, Watson proposed a methodological approach to psychological problems that would be logical, precise, and scientific, basing his conclusions on stimulus response and conditioning test given to children and categorizing the results

Psychology from the standpoint of a behaviorist by John B Watson( Book )

63 editions published between 1919 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines psychology in the context of behaviorism and reports upon those things that any properly trained individual can observe. Behavior psychology has been called physiology, muscle-twitch psychology and biology, but if it helps to rid us of the constraints of present-day conventional psychology and teaches us to face the human being more directly, what name it is given is not a matter of much consequence. Behavior psychology has had a rapid development and is a direct outgrowth of work on animal behavior. While behavior psychology borrows from conditioned reflex methods and psychopathologists, it is neither an objective psychology nor a modified system of psychoanalysis. The present volume disrupts the traditional classification of psychological topics and their conventional treatment. Terms such as consciousness, sensation, perception, attention, will, image and the like are avoided by the author due to his belief that they are used inconsistently and have unclear meanings. Terms such as thinking and memory have been redefined to conform with behavioristic psychology. Also, in this text the author has clung to the genetic method rather closely in hopes that students grasp the genesis of the various types of organization.

Behavior : an introduction to comparative psychology by John B Watson( Book )

47 editions published between 1914 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 942 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Watson states that this volume on behavior has been written to be serviceable in classroom work in psychology and biology. Watson first discusses what he considers the unsatisfactory nature of present psychological premises and the nature of the behaviorist theory. Issues explored in behaviorist studies such as sense perception, instinct, habits, learning processes, and conditioning are explored. Experimental methodology is examined. A discussion of animal learning and comparative behavior is provided"--Publisher. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved)

Suggestions of modern science concerning education by H. S Jennings( Book )

12 editions published between 1917 and 2011 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Joint Committee on Education was formed to arouse an intelligent interest in public schools. Its work was threefold: to secure newspaper publicity for educational topics, to encourage school visiting based on recent school surveys and a study of experimental schools, and to seek what new light on the subject might be obtained from modern science. Some mothers whose daily care of little children during the years when they were acquiring knowledge and developing their powers naturally, instinctively, were convinced that school hampered rather than helped them. They argued--if "sensation tends toward motion," why, during the years when, life is largely sensation, do we screw our children into desks five hours a day; if variety of type is desirable, why strive for uniformity; if surplus energy is necessary to further evolution, why not conserve that wonderful superabundant vitality of childhood? Might not biology, psychology, psychopathology, sociology offer suggestions concerning a school program which should secure physical, mental and moral health, and the development of individual initiative and creative power? The committee feel in duty bound to share with all parents and teachers the remarkable series of papers written in response to their need"--Foreword.
