Product Description

Review

'No previous book on B.F. Skinner provides—or even attempts—such systematic coverage and in-depth historical research on Skinnerian technology as Beyond the Box. It will appeal to the educated public and historians of psychology, science, and American culture. I expect that it will be widely read and cited for years to come.' (Laurence D. Smith, Department of Psychology, University of Maine)

Format: Paperback
This is a well-written book that fills an important gap in the literature. There have been several books written on Skinner and behaviourism but these tend to be weak on the Skinnerian legacy. Alexandra Rutherford explains carefully the (in my view irrational) opposition that Skinnerian methods encountered. If you ever wondered why something so obviously appropriate to the human condition and easing human suffering as behaviour modification has not received wider recognition and application, you could do no better than to read this book.

I used this book in preparing a college paper and presentation on Skinner. This covers Skinner and how he developed as a person as well as a theorist.
