Four Varieties of Behaviorism
AbstractBehaviorism as a methodology offers nothing positive. Behaviorism is a program rather than a methodology. Behaviorism is not necessarily identical with the neuromechanistic interpretation; nor can we tie it up with the linguistic conception of thought. In attempting to answer the question, "Am I a behaviorist?" Woodworth replies: " . . . I do not know, and do not much care. If I am, it is because I believe in the several projects put forward by behaviorists. If I am not, it is partly because I also believe in other projects which behaviorists seem to avoid, and partly because I cannot see any one big thing, to be called "behaviorism' . . .
