Reacting against traditional psychology’s 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.

Behaviorism aimed to free psychology from elusive, vague concepts and establish it as a true natural science."@en ;
