Default Re: AABT becomes ABCT

Hi Ben---

I can recall when Skinner was absolutely adamant in his belief that the operant paradigm was more than sufficient to explain human behavior and that the turning inward to examine something so covert as the human thought process was totally unnecessary. I am sure that among the older crowd the orthodoxy lives------ much as in the APA the research people never forgave the Association for becoming so dominated by the 'applied'. 'professional' people. You know those psychologists who felt that psychology was not nearly ready enough to become an applied, eh, science.
