On a causal theory of rational behavior, behavior is just a causal consequence of the reasons an actor has. One of the difficulties with this theory has been the possibility of the "wayward causal chains," according to which reasons can cause the expec…

Philosophical interest in intentional action has flourished in recent decades. Typically, action theorists propose necessary and sufficient conditions for a movement's being an action, conditions derived from a conceptual analysis of folk psychological …

Much research in the field of emotions has shown that people differ in the cues that they use to perceive their own emotions. People who are more responsive to personal cues (personal cuers) make use of cues arising from their own bodies and behavior; …

A central tenet of cognitivism is that knowing how is to be explained in terms of tacitly knowing that a theory is true. By critically examining canonical anti-behaviorist arguments and contemporary appeals to tacit knowledge, I have devised a more expl…

An assessment of Relational Frame Theory (RFT) is benefited by a distinction among goals, experiments, and theorizing/philosophizing. The goals are laudable, but not new. The experiments are interesting, but they largely involve an expansion of the con…

Leigland eloquently and accurately distinguished methodological and radical behaviorism. Baum represents the molar radical behaviorism that has developed over the past four decades while Galbicka carries on the struggle of the old molecular view, a vie…

With S.S. Stevens, operationism became an important influence in psychology. In this paper I discuss the differences between Bridgman's and Stevens' proposals on operationism and the role that operational definitions play in scientific theory. I discus…

Like the Tai Chi of the title, effective action is a blend of two modalities, the yang of science, the yin of desire. Without yang we are blind, without yin we don't look. Signal Detection Theory takes a line from this ancient book of changes. It clarif…

According to the demand of the Hypothetico-Deductive (H-D) method, a theory is confirmed when the prediction-observation (p-o) gap is small and disconfirmed when the gap is large. A major goal of this paper is to introduce a research domain for which t…

Adding relational frame theory and equivalence-class stimulus relations to the operant-based distinction of rulegoverned and contingency-shaped behavior may not be the soundest strategy. I make this assertion based upon the inherent conceptual and logi…

This essay presents an analysis in the area of the theory of human action. Philosophers and psychologists are interested in theories of action because action defines those behaviors that are under our control as opposed to behaviors that in some sense j…
