The Analysis of Behavior

New York: McGraw-Hill, 1961. Octavo. Item #031595

Pages bound dos-a-dos with continuous pagination, as issued to facilitate as a "teaching machine". In a self-instructional format consisting of 1800 information or teaching frames each of which requires that the student respond with an appropriate term or concept. In turn, the correct answer to each frame is provided for the student after he has responded. The content of The Analysis of Behavior is familiar to readers of Skinner's Science and Human Learning. While this would be ideal for those students of behavioralism in psychological terms, it will also reward those who lacked a formal study in college of the subject but who with patience will learn the more advanced studies of the Skinner's system. By the time the reader has arrived at chapter V (Intermittent Reinforcement), he will then understand stimulus control considering deprivation and avoidance and escape behavior. The final chapter deals with the Interpretation of Personality. A very nice copy bound in beige cloth spine lettering red and blue foil, previous owner's name otherwise near fine in a good chipped and edge worn dust jacket.
