LibraryThing Review

User Review  - blake.rosser - LibraryThing

It's interesting and not horribly-written for a doctor, but then you get to the end and realize he's propounding living in giant Brave New World type societies where everyone's behavior is rigorously controlled by doctors and science. Scary, damn behavioral psychologists. Read full review

About the author (1974)

Burrhus Frederic Skinner (1904–1990), regarded by many as the most important and influential psychologist since Freud, earned his doctorate in psychology at Harvard University in 1931. Following appointments at the University of Minnesota and Indiana University, he returned to Harvard in 1948. He remained there for the rest of his career, retiring in 1974 as Edgar Pierce Professor of Psychology.
