Walden Two by B. F Skinner( Book )

207 editions published between 1948 and 2012 in 10 languages and held by 4,965 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This fictional outline of a modern utopia has been a center of controversy ever since its publication in 1948. Set in the United States, it pictures a society in which human problems are solved by a scientific technology of human conduct. It is now widely recognized that great changes must be made in the American way of life. Not only can we not face the rest of the world while consuming and polluting as we do, we cannot for long face ourselves while acknowledging the violence and chaos in which we live. The choice is clear: either we do nothing and allow a miserable and probably catastrophic future to overtake us, or we use our knowledge about human behavior to create a social environment in which we shall live productive and creative lives and do so without jeopardizing the chances that those who follow us will be able to do the same.-Back cover

61 editions published between 1959 and 1999 in 4 languages and held by 2,106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On the principle that turnabout is fair play, the behavior of which the present papers are a product has been plotted cumulatively in Figure 1. Certain familiar problems arise. It is hard to identify units to be counted, and the curve neglects other behavior of a similar nature occurring at the same time. Arbitrary solutions to these problems do not wholly destroy the significance of the result. When total number of pages is plotted against year of publication, the curve shows a relatively constant slope (indicating a steady output) for the twenty-five year period from 1930 to 1955 and a later period of heightened activity. Three papers have been added to this second printing: as an addendum to Part I, The Design of Cultures; as an addendum to Part III, Why We Need Teaching Machines; and as an addendum to Part VIII, Pigeons in a Pelican"--Preface.

"The present version is more than twice as long as the James Lectures and contains many changes made to conform with recent progress in the experimental analysis of behavior, human and otherwise. Although the emphasis is not upon experimental or statistical facts, the book is not theoretical in the usual sense. It makes no appeal to hypothetical explanatory entities. The ultimate aim is the prediction and control of verbal behavior"--Book. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
