ABSTRACT: Watson set the initial parameters for a science of behavior. The experimental analysis of behavior as developed by Skinner still has much work to do before claiming to be the science of behavior. The cultural environment has been shaping the be…

ABSTRACT: While the CyberRat simulation described by Ray (2011/2012) has considerable value as an educational tool, its value also lies in the validation of the descriptive interbehavioral systems analysis (IBSA) approach upon which it was developed. The …

I am always somewhat disconcerted when colleagues, telling me about their research, describe the experimental design before acquainting me with the problem the experiment is addressing. They seem not to recognize that an experimental design is empty until…
