Summary "The Philosophical Legacy of Behaviorism represents the first book to describe the unique contributions of a behavioral perspective on the major issues of philosophy. Far from espousing a 'black box' perspective on human cognition and philosophical reasoning, behaviorism (as derived from the works of B.F. Skinner) represents a contemporary and viable approach to conceptualizing important philosophical and psychological issues."--BOOK JACKET. "This work will make an excellent text for upper-level undergraduates and graduate students in the fields of philosophy and psychology, as well as be of interest to established scholars in those disciplines."--BOOK JACKET
