The psychology of B.F. Skinner by William T O'Donohue( )

14 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 2,003 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Behaviorists, or more precisely Skinnerians, commonly consider Skinner's work to have been misrepresented, misunderstood, and to some extent defamed. In this book, the author clarifies the work of B F Skinner, and puts it into historical and philosophical context. Though not a biography, the book discusses Skinner himself, in brief. But the bulk of the book illuminates Skinner's contributions to psychology, his philosophy of science, his experimental research program (logical positivism) and the behavioral principles that emerged from it, and applied aspects of his work. It also rebuts criticism of Skinner's work, including radical behaviorism, and discusses key developments by others that have derived from it

Knowing when to use a skill, for how long, and in what manner is the art that goes along with the science of knowing the skills."
