Resources
Discussion and Participation Scoring Guide.
In his article ""The Origins of Cognitive Thought,"" B. F. Skinner makes the following derisive comment about the rise of cognitive psychology and cognitive science beginning in the 1950s
The battle cry of the cognitive revolution is 'Mind is back!' A 'great new science of mind' is born. Behaviorism nearly destroyed our concern for it, but behaviorism has been overthrown, and we can take up again where philosophers and early psychologists left off (p. 17).
Have advances in cognitive psychology and cognitive science truly overthrown behaviorism? What applications are there today for behaviorism? What evidence do you have to support your position?
Please answer the discussion question by completing the following
Refer to and integrate ideas presented in the text and any supplemental readings.
