Radical Behaviorism (eBook)
Not a mechanistic or reductionistic approach to verbal behavior, radical behaviorism is actually a sophisticated form of radical pragmatism-and Day did more than any other scholar apart from B.F. Skinner to define and promote this approach.
From the mid-1960s until his death in 1989, Willard Day wrote and spoke on two central themes: the distinctive characteristics of Skinner’s scientific philosophy, and the implications of Skinner’s work for the development of scientific methods relevant to verbal behavior. Only some of this work made its way to publication. Edited by Sam Leigland, this book brings together in one place the most important papers, published and unpublished, of the leader in behavioral philosophy.
