RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 45188938 LA English T1 The psychology of B.F. Skinner A1 O'Donohue, William T., Ferguson, Kyle E., PB Sage PP Thousand Oaks, Calif. YR 2001 SN 0761917586 9780761917588 0761917594 9780761917595 AB Behaviorists, or more precisely Skinnerians, commonly consider Skinner's work to have been misrepresented, misunderstood, and to some extent defamed. In this book, the author clarifies the work of B F Skinner, and puts it into historical and philosophical context. Though not a biography, the book discusses Skinner himself, in brief. But the bulk of the book illuminates Skinner's contributions to psychology, his philosophy of science, his experimental research program (logical positivism) and the behavioral principles that emerged from it, and applied aspects of his work. It also rebuts criticism of Skinner's work, including radical behaviorism, and discusses key developments by others that have derived from it.
