Behaviorism by John B Watson( Book )

192 editions published between 1924 and 2017 in 9 languages and held by 3,188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Two opposed points of view," John B. Watson wrote in 1925, "are still dominant in American psychological thinking: introspective or subjective psychology, and behaviorism or objective psychology." His statement is still true today. Reacting against traditional psychology's emphasis on feelings and introspection, and its lack of precise categories, Watson proposed a methodological approach to psychological problems that would be logical, precise, and scientific. Consciousness, he believed, was not a usable hypothesis: the proper subject of human psychology is the behavior of the human being. Behaviorism aimed to free psychology from elusive, vague concepts and establish it as a true natural science

"Watson states that this volume on behavior has been written to be serviceable in classroom work in psychology and biology. Watson first discusses what he considers the unsatisfactory nature of present psychological premises and the nature of the behaviorist theory. Issues explored in behaviorist studies such as sense perception, instinct, habits, learning processes, and conditioning are explored. Experimental methodology is examined. A discussion of animal learning and comparative behavior is provided"--Publisher. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved)

Suggestions of modern science concerning education by H. S Jennings( )

"The Joint Committee on Education was formed to arouse an intelligent interest in public schools. Its work was threefold: to secure newspaper publicity for educational topics, to encourage school visiting based on recent school surveys and a study of experimental schools, and to seek what new light on the subject might be obtained from modern science. Some mothers whose daily care of little children during the years when they were acquiring knowledge and developing their powers naturally, instinctively, were convinced that school hampered rather than helped them. They argued--if "sensation tends toward motion," why, during the years when, life is largely sensation, do we screw our children into desks five hours a day; if variety of type is desirable, why strive for uniformity; if surplus energy is necessary to further evolution, why not conserve that wonderful superabundant vitality of childhood? Might not biology, psychology, psychopathology, sociology offer suggestions concerning a school program which should secure physical, mental and moral health, and the development of individual initiative and creative power? The committee feel in duty bound to share with all parents and teachers the remarkable series of papers written in response to their need"--Foreword.

The development of certain instincts and habits in chicks by Frederick S Breed( )

2 editions published in 1911 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The experimental work reported in this monograph was carried on during the years 1907, 1908, and 1909 in the Harvard Psychological Laboratory. The variety of chick used in all the work was the Barred Plymouth Rock. It is usually considered by poultry breeders a hardy chick, and for this reason more than any other was selected for these tests. The program of research began with a cursory study of the first activities of the animals, preliminary to a more detailed study of certain instinctive modes of response such as drinking, pecking, and "imitating." In the case of drinking, interest centered in the nature of the stimulus; in the case of pecking, in the accuracy of the reaction; as for imitation, the question was asked, In how far is social influence a means to improvement in the accuracy of pecking? After some knowledge of the natural tendencies of the chicks had been gained, an attempt was made to trace the course of development of certain habits of response to optical stimuli, as well as to study the interrelation and persistence of these habits. Quantitative methods were devised and applied wherever they suggested themselves to the experimenter. The investigation was pursued under the immediate direction of Professor Robert M. Yerkes"--Introduction. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2009 APA, all rights reserved)
